Russia - China Match

The Russian won the remaining two stage ( Rapid and Blitz) to emerged as the winner in this year match. The Chinese won the classical stage. Unfortunately two side that cover this match- Russian Chess Federation and Chinese Chess Association is using the Russian and Chinese language so it's difficult to understand the score, even with the help of a translator.

This Week In Chess stated that the Russian won the match however rapid and blitz games are not included.
In my view, the Chinese who fielded the same players who will play in the men team in this November 2008 Dresden Olympiad has gained a slight confident by beating the Russian men team in the classical time control. However, the Russian may argue that their top horse for Dresden is not playing in this match - Vladimir Kramnik, Alexander Morozevich and Alexander Grischuk !
