The Malaysian Men and Women team did well in dispatching Libya and Finland both with the same score of 3½ – ½ respectively.

 

The men’s team is currently ranked 86/185 which is good considering the initial seeding of 107.

The women’s team rank is 41/151. Their initial seeding is 68.

The “yo-yo” effect is now less going into Round 8 seeing more teams of  similiar strength meeting each other.

Malaysia men meets Botswana (seeded 116) and the Malaysian women will meet Takijistan (ranked 76) in Round 8.
