Phl losses against Armenia

It was a tough loss for Philippine Men's team against the defending two-time olympiad champion Armenian chess team with a score of 1.5 - 2.5. GM Wesley So drew the game against super-GM Levon Aronian on board 1, and so are the games on boards two and three with GM Barbosa and Paragua. IM Dimakiling's defeat on board 4 was the deciding match.

Although the Armenian's won, GM Aronian, currently the world's number 2, had praises for GM So.

For Round 5, GM Eugene Torre will play on board 3 and this will mark a record of 21 Olympiad stints. Philippines will be playing against Iceland and rating-wise, we are expected to win this one.
