    Bulgaria 4-2 Australia. Looked like being 3.5-2.5 but in time trouble Temur missed the win of a piece and instead allowed a perpetual. Highlight was Jilin drawing with Stefanova.

    We are ranked number 3 at the moment. We just need to make sure that we do well in the next two days. Other teams are losing points too.

    Anton is giving an interview at the end of this video. One can see that he is quite upset by his result but he still holds himself pretty well.

    he did quite well apart from being a star player he is also developing into a fine statesperson!
    To be honest I am disappointed with Ana. Mispronouncing surnames like she did with Temur and other players is understood, laughing stupidly about it is another.
    Her own surname isn't the easiest to pronounce anyway. I am sure she wouldn't like people laughing about it.
    Another unfortunate moment was when she described a player as "an old lady who likes playing chess"!
    Learn some manners lady!

    So we play Bangladesh, Turkmenistan and the Phillipines today with the hardest match being against the Phillipines. Still we could easily win all three matches.

    Australia 4-2 Bangladesh. Turnarounds in a few games in time trouble but more or less cancelled out.

    Result showing as 4-2 Australia vs Turkmenistan though no idea what happened with Giang's game showing as drawn in a lost position.

    Epic draw in Julia's game - she was lost but opponent blundered with 56...b2 to which 57.g4! was a very nice reply. In the end she even got to miss 113.Re4+ winning.

    Ryjanova, Julia (AUS) - Ovezdurdiyeva, Jemal (TKM)

    Australia 4-2 Philippines.

    We are still third but have a tough run home with Germany, Indonesia and Belarus to play. The Indonesia match is especially important.

    Belarus are eliminated now; they have lost 4 of their matches 2.5-3.5.

    I can only imagine what's on the Belorussian players' minds right now...surprised they can even plan chess...
    Also there have been constant problems with the Internet in Belarus getting disconnected every now and then due to the political turmoil.
