Board 1 : GM Oscar De La Riva (2521) vs IM Mashafziul (2422)

* Mas lost to GM Oscar. Refer the game anotation here

Board 2 : IM Mok Tze Meng (2419) vs FM Marc Simonet (2277)

*Mok game has not yet pass the opening stage and the position looks equal.
* Mok manage to give his opponent a double pawn.
* Mok split the points.

Board 3 : FM Raul Garcia (2236) vs Tan Khai Boon (2160)

*Khai Boon has felt into an early trap. He is a pawn down without any compensation.
* Khai Boon try to build an attack on the queenside where his opponent king's reside.
* Khai Boon has lost more exchange and can already resign.
* Khai Boon has already resign.

Board 4 : Vicens Santamaria (2085) vs FM Peter Long (2302)

* Peter has already got a big advantage due to his opponent mistake on move 10th.
* Peter is totally winning. I think a point is already in hand.His position is still difficult but not totally lost
* Peter win! If i'm not mistaken this is the second time he be the first player to finish.

The Women Section : Malaysia vs Netherlands ( latest results :- 1 - 3 )

Board 1 : Alia Anin Azwa Bakri (1904) vs GM Peng Zhaoqin (2400)

As mention by IM Jimmy Liew in his blog, Alia has a great chance to get the WIM norm if he get a point from three games against 2200+ player. However she will have a tough task againstPeng Zhaoqin who is a full GM and 6 times Dutch Women Champion!

* Peng Zhaoqin seems to equalise already and her pieces looks more active but Alia's position is still solid
* Peng is a pawn up, and Alia has lost her attack and pressure on the kingside. Her queen is misplaced on the queenside.
* White's defense was tear apart. Alia will resign shortly i think.
* I think the end is near. Alia will have to give his queen to avoid mate. Although he will have a rook left, it's no match against black's queen.

Alia has resign.

Board 2 : IM Tea Lanchava (2342) vs WCM Nur Nabila Azman Hisham (1829)

Tea seems to have a slight advantage . Nabila is in time trouble. She has about 6 minutes to reach time control whereas her opponent has almost a hour.
* Nabila has reached the time control but unfortunately her opponent is still in command. Nabila need to defend passively and pray for the best.

IM Tea Lanchava (2342) vs WCM Nur Nabila Azman Hisham (1829)
39th Olympiad, Round 9, 30.9.2010

White to move

55.g3?? the correct move is 55.Rg7! and white maintain the big advantage. Nabila opponent actually blunder big time!The swindle move 55...Rf3+! 56.Kg2 Nc4! followed by 57...Ne3+ should win for Nabila! . 55...Nd7?? Nabila was in time trouble ( less then a minute left). She miss the winning move. Now white's is winning back. 56. Ra8 Rf3+ 57. Kg2 Nf8 58. Rc8 Rf6 59. a6 Rf7 60. a7 Rxa7 61. Rxf8 Rh7 62. Rc8 Rxh6 63. Rxc2 Rf6 64. Rc4 Rg6 65. Nc3 Rg8 66. Nd1 Black will lost soon. 66...Rg7 67.Ne3 1-0 Nabila resign.

Board 3 : Nurul Huda Wahiduddin (2020) vs WIM Lisa Schut (2288)

* the game is unclear
* Nurul draw.

Board 4 : WIM Arlette Van Weersel (2174) vs Roslina Marmono (1933)

* Roslina pieces is uncoordinated but she still far from losing
* Roslina is a pawn up but it's a double one. Her pieces is still uncoordinated compare to her opponent.
* Roslina piece is still passive. Her pawn advantage doesn't count much because it is a double pawn. Her opponent now have a potential passed pawn on h-file.
* Roslina has turn the table. She seems to have a winning position.
* Roslina stubbornly play a difficult posiition and almost get a full points for it. In the end, she draw.
