    After 2 rounds in Sanya it looks like Chinese Taipei will be the qualifiers, having beaten Thailand 5-3 yesterday they just need a point from Hong Kong on Sunday. Hong Kong lost 2-7 to Thailand today. Kuwait well below the level of the other teams as expected.

    Day 3 in Group K saw Romania easily beat Iceland to advance to Round 3 while in the other game Israel beat Kyrgyzstan in overtime, so not a bad effort for the Central Asian nation.

    - Kyrgyzstan 4-5 (OT) Israel
    - Romania 10-1 Iceland

    Group K Standings:
    1. Romania - 9pts - Advances to Pre-qualification Round 3
    2. Iceland - 6pts
    3. Israel - 2pts
    4. Kyrgyzstan - 1pts

    Day 3 of Group L has only had the one game played so far with Chinese Taipei upsetting Mexico 7-1. The Netherlands v Spain match however has been postponed due to problems with the ice (according to National Teams of Ice Hockey). I'll keep an eye on it and update when there is a result.

    - Chinese Taipei 7-1 Mexico

    Group L standings:
    1. Netherlands - 6pts
    2. Spain - 6pts
    3. Chinese Taipei - 3pts
    4. Mexico - 0pts

    And Day 3 for Group M saw a close decider for advancement with Croatia only winning by one goal. In the other match Turkey beat Bulgaria.

    - Turkey 4-1 Bulgaria
    - Croatia 2-1 Serbia

    Group M standings:
    1. Croatia - 9pts - Advances to Pre-qualification Round 3
    2. Serbia - 6pts
    3. Turkey - 3pts
    4. Bulgaria - 0pts

    Thanks for summarising these events for us. Given the wide disparity in World Championship level these national teams play at , some big defeats were inevitable. Some good performances from the Div III/IV teams though. KGZ taking ISR to overtime and TPE beating MEX were both very creditable. TUR also performed well in their group.
