As India beat Iran 2.5-0.5 to move closer to the gold medal, a resurgent China team blanked Vietnam 3:0 to climb to solo second with 14 points in the race for silver at the homestretch of the Asian Games Chess Team Championship in Doha, Qatar. Within striking distance are Kazakhstan and Indonesia with 13 points each after beating Qatar and Jordan, respectively. Visit the Asian Games website.

Iran`s Ehsan Ghaem Maghami stopped the winning streak of Indian captain Krishnan Sasikiran with a draw in 37 moves. But Pentala Harikrishna and Humpy Koneru beat Elshan Moradiabadi and Atousa Pourkashian, respectively, for India`s victory.

The drubbing at the hands of India pushed Iran down to a share of 5th place with 12 points.

Dao Thein Hai sacrified a piece against china`s Bu Xiangzhi in order to get an attack going but the Chinese ace survived and won the endgame with his extra piece. Wang Yue made easy work of GM Nguyen Anh Dung in only 23 moves and Nguyen Thu Thanh An missed a mate in two combination starting with a Queen scrifice by Zhao Xue of China.

A 9-round Swiss System tournament among 21 teams seems like a round robin among the top teams. India plays Indonesia while China and Kazakhstan face off in the penultimate 8th round.

Kazakhstan smashed Qatar 2.5-0.5. Asian Games Rapid Chess gold medalist Murtas Kazhgaleyev caught IM Mohamad Al Sayed in an opening trap to win in just 19 moves. Darmen Sadvakasov beat Mohamed Al Mohdiaki in 33 moves but wife and former women`s world champion Zhu Chen drew with Dana Aketaeva to prevent a shutout.

China, Indonesia and Kazakhstan are battling it out for silver. In the running for bronze are 12 pointers Iran, Qatar, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan.
