2012 World Chess Olympiad Round 10: Draw with Vietnam puts the Philippines on the verge of a top 10 finish

8 09 2012

In the Round 10 match-up with neighboring Vietnam, all four boards ended up in a draw.  The draw kept the Philippines hopes of finishing within the top 10 alive. A win against 25th ranked Romania will definitely help the team of Eugene Torre, Wesley So, Oliver Barbosa, Mark Paragua, and Oliver Dimakiling attain the best ever finish for a Philippine Team in a chess olympiad.

China now leads the standings via tie-breaker over Armenia and Russia. China will face No.2 seeded Ukraine in the final round.
