In the fifth round, the Malaysian men team had similar fate as the women's in the fourth round. Malaysia lose to lower-seeded Bolivia. The score was 1.5-2.5 where all players except the second board drew and got half point. What done is done. Just focus to the next round game. Forget the past. Malaysia will play over San Marino which has lower ELO ratings. GiLoCatur hopes Malaysia can win convincingly to earn 2 important match points.
Among other ASEAN countries, Thailand had an excellent result.It scored 3.5-0.5 points against higher-rated South Africa, the 2010 world cup host.
