Zim Men’s team beats Dominican Republic 2.5-1.5 in the last match to finish the 11 rounds at 6 wins, 1 draw and 4 losses. A fine result indeed considering Zimbabwe is the 2nd best African team (no. 59 overall), Egypt being the best African performer at this big chess event (no. 19 overall)! China, USA and Russia came out tops in the Open section of this major event.
