Sri Lanka outclasses 3-1 win over Brunei

Sri Lanka beat Brunei 3-1 in the 11th round of the 41st Chess Olympiad continued in Norway last Tuesday. Sri Lankan captain, Chinthaka Anurudda maintained his unbeaten run in the tournament with a brilliant victory on board one beating Siti Nur.

The other two victories were recorded on board two and three with Chamika Perera and Isuru Alahakoon clinching their games against Zain Izzudin and Kamis Kamarunsalehin respectively.

Rajeendra Kalugampitiya continued to disappoint the team as he was beaten by Azahari Aliuddin on board four to record his third consecutive loss.

Sri Lanka women’s team meanwhile came on top of a see-sawing round against Chinese Taipei winning the particular round 2.5-1.5. The points were setup by the victories of SA Chandrasiri (on board one), Dasuni Hansika (on board four) and a draw by the captain Yasoda Methmali (on board two).

The men’s team will face New Zealand in the next round while the women’s team will take on Scotland. (HA)
