In a result that will surely send shockwaves throughout the entire Philippine archipelago, the RP team could only draw with Australia 1, two games all. I have to say that I did expect these Aussies to be annihilated. Maybe they do have chess culture, after all. Now if only these Aussies can stop pretending to be giants in Oceania, among the likes of, err, Fiji and, umm, New Zealand, and take on the powerhouses in zone 3.2a then maybe - just maybe. Well done to the young Australians. I'm sure the RP boys would have secretly uttered to the Aussies: "See you at the Oympiad fellas. Some day!"
Have a nice weekend to my fellow Australians. I do love youse, you know.
