Chess Olympiad 2008 round 8 results: Philippines lost to the Netherlands

After coming up with an impressive victory against Belgium, the RP men's team absorbed it's worst beating thus far at the Olympiad as we lost to the Dutch 0.5 : 3.5. With the result, the Philippines dropped out of the top fifty team in the standings, in 57th place. In round 9, we will be paired against the 18th seed Czech Republic. The Philippines has yet to beat teams that are higher seeded than us. Meanwhile, 37th seed Vietnam continue their impressive run as they hold their ground against power house China, the 3rd seed at the Olympiad, to remain in the top ten of the standings.
