30 August 2012, Kuala Lumpur – Malaysia has its hands full tonight with 2 GMs and 2 IMs in the Egypt men’s chess team. On paper, we are the under-dog. We hope the Malaysian team has an ace up their sleeve to conjure an upset. Malaysia has put in Yeoh Li Tian on third board while IM Jimmy Liew is rested.
Meanwhile the line-up for the women’s Malaysia vs Bolivia indicate that Camilia Johari is rested and Tan Li Ting comes back on fourth board. WFM Nur Najiha on first board, WCM Nur Nabila on second and WCM Fong Mi Yen on third completes the Malaysian women’s chess team line-up of round 3. They are playing a higher seeded team from Bolivia with two WIMs. Malaysia needs some magic tonight to turn the tables.
