EU Senior Team Ch 2017 Novi Sad

Play in this miserable looking event started today. There are 10 teams in the 50+ so they have a round-robin. Half the teams are Serbian. In the 65+ there are only 9 teams so each day one will have a bye. Belgium had the day off. Only Russia and Denmark have strong teams. England brought a reserve. ...

Re: 2017 World Teams 16-27 June

Today's other match-ups (apart from Russia-China) in the men's event now under way. Turkey v USA (top board Solak-Shankland drawn already) Ukraine-India Norway-Poland Egypt-Belarus. I guess Russia decided to give Nepo' White in a battle of the youth. Or maybe Svidler wanted to watch the women's cric...

Re: Grand Chess Tour events: Paris GCT and Leuven, Belgium

Caruana missed more wins, blundered horribly, has one draw from six games. Painful to watch.

Re: Zoltan Sarosy (1906-2017)

Almost certainly the strongest chess player amongst supercentenarians ever - he was master strength OTB and became one of the best correspondence players in his adopted country of Canada.

Re: 2017 World Teams 16-27 June

Kovalev has gone wrong in the Q ending and it now looks as if Onischuk may hold for 2-2 in the USA-Belarus match. Still a poor result for the Americans.
All the other games have finished now (4.55pm).
LATER: Onishchuk saved the Americans.
