China Dominate Both Categories Chess Team Events

AG-StadiumUniTown 23 November 2010, Kuala Lumpur – At the Asian Games chess team event, hosts China dominates in both team categories men and women with the Men’s team clearly in the lead with 13.5 points and 1.5 points ahead of Philippines team in second. The sixth round of play is ongoing right now. Tomorrow will be the last day of play to decide the final rankings of the countries.

WGM Ju, Wenjun, China (2524) In women’s category, China is leading with 15.0 points and India in second with 14.0 points. (Fireyrook thinks the results table from results.com is not quite right as it shows Uzbekistan with 15.5 points in third. Maybe it should read either 13.5 or 12.5 points for Uzbekistan).

Meanwhile Malaysia did not participate in the team chess event as they require four minimum players for each category.

Similarly the women’s team also require four players and not two. As such Malaysia is not represented in  either the Men’s nor Women’s team chess event of this IM WangYu A, China (2403) year’s Asian Games edition.

In 2014, South Korea will be the new host for the Asian Games and chess would not feature in their probable line of sports then.
