After a 4-0 trashing by the Egyptian last night, Malaysia has drop to 98th place, 25 place below our intial seeding ( 73rd) . Tonight in round 8, Malaysia will face International Physically Disabled Chess Association (IPCA) and nothing less then a win is required to climb back the ladder.
Although the Malaysian team will face a physically disabled players, we must understood that chess is a mind but not physical game. So there's no advantage whatsoever for the Malaysian. Furthermore, the IPCA team consist 4 IM's ! - Better then Malaysia ( 2 IM's and 2 FM's - only) so better be carefull guys !
