Local chess pair see medal hopes fading fast

Cambodia’s Chinese Chess contingent failed yet again to record a victory in the Asian Games during their round of games yesterday at the Guangzhou Chess Institute. However, Lay Chhay grabbed another point by means of a draw against Malaysia’s Lay Kam Hock. Heng Chamnan, meanwhile, fell to Sandy Chua of the Philippines. Yesterday’s scores mean the Kingdom’s men require wins from all of their remaining three rounds, with other results needing to go their way, to grab medals from the event, which concludes on Friday. The Chinese pair of Hong Zhi and L V Qin now sit atop the leaderboard.
