The other result was the 3.5-0.5 demolition of Mexico by the Australian team. The Mexicans had a rating edge on each board, but Smerdon drew on the top board and Ly, Ikeda and Smirnov all won. The win for Smirnov may also be enough to push his rating past the 2400 mark, which he needs to do to receive an IM title (subject to confirmation).
The Australian Women's team also had a good result, beating England 2.5-1.5.Again this was an underdog victory, as the English were seeded 12 places above the Australians.
