Dresden Chess Olympiad round 10: Philippines beats Tunisia

The Philippines beats the 89th seed Tunisia just hours ago, 3.5 : 0.5 in the penultimate round of the Olympiad. But it may be too late. The RP team is in the 53rd place. We're still beyond striking distance of landing into top 30 or even surpassing our 44th place finish in Turin. Not only that, we are also in serious danger of producing one of our worst showing at the Chess Olympiad. We will be facing next the 31st seed Argentina in the final round. Another team seeded higher than the Philippines.

Leaving this 38th Chess Olympiad on a high note will do a lot for the future of our "post-Torre/Antonio" RP Chess Team. A win against the Argentine will certainly give us hope for the succeeding olympiads.I believe this team gained a lot in experiencing world-class team competition especially in terms of preparation.
