Malaysia vs Germany 1 in Round 3 !

FM Lim Yee Weng at Dresden.
After beating Jersey 2.5 - 1.5 last night (morning) , Malaysia collected 6 points and is on the 7th place! The leader Azerbaijan is top with 7 points. However the reality will come early in the 3rd round when Malaysia will be paired against the giant and host country - Germany 1 for the 3rd round of the 2008 Dresden Olympiad which will start at about 10pm Malaysian time. If my memory serve me well, Malaysia were trashed 0-4 by the German in 2006 Turin Olympiad.

I wish that some our player could "steal" one or half points from the mighty giant. I predict the German team will rest their top board - GM Arkadij Naiditsch (2678). All the best guys!

Possible line up for round 3 clash against Germany 1.

Board 1 : GM Igor Khenkin (2647) vs IM Mashafizul Helmi (2439)

Board 2 : GM Jan Gustafsson (2634) vs FM Lim Yee Weng (2396)

Board 3 : GM Daniel Fridman (2630) vs FM Mok Tze Meng (2308) ( or Jimmy Liew !?)

Board 4 : GM David Baramidze (2557) vs NM Edward Lee
