Increadible, but the first super GM defeat came in round 1! This is GM Le Quang Liem, who loses to the Botswana player Kheto Phemelo. Now someone will say, how come Botswana? We reported on the country's expectations just 5 days before the Olympiad, read for yourself

It's very confusing. The result shows 4-0 but the games show a Black win on Board 1, featuring nice tricks (twice) on h2.

What happened in the Senegal-Singapore match in Round 1 of the open section? There are no game moves in any of the pgn's I could find (from chessbase, the week in chess, and the official site).

Senegal didn't show up. Singapore won by default
