As for the match against Singapore, 0-4 was not a surprise. However Nigel Marko fought hard on debut, while FM Stuart Fancy made IM Kevin Goh Wei Ming work for is point. I fact he was equal for quite a long while, and even offered a draw around move 25. However the tournament rules allow no draw agreements before move 30, and by the time the players had reached this mark, Fancy's position had begun to deteriorate.
The PNG team have Puerto Rico today which is another tough pairing. Also, I am uploading lots if pics from the event to my chess photo collection. Just click the link on the left hand side of this blog.
