An amazing day for England yesterday. I'm particularly pleased for Ben, that must be his best result ever. Also noted that White Rose won 4-2 against an Albanian side.

But did we forget the Scots? Despite being outgraded heavily in both matches they still got outstanding results yesterday:

Edinburgh (45) 3.5 - 2.5 Asker (Norway)(34)

1 Sreeves, Clement (2242) 1-0 Ostenstad, Berge (2467)
2 Berry, Neil (2216) ½-½ Tisdall, Jonathan D (2418)
3 Green, Andrew D (2140) 1-0 Hammerstad, Asmund (2263)
4 Mcgowan, Daniel (2087) 0-1 Aulin-Jansson, Joran (2203)
5 Bhopal, Raj (2043) 1-0 Diesen, Bruce (2188)
6 Sykes, Chris (1934) 0-1 Gunnesdal, Lars (2125)

SV Muelheim Nord (Germany)(22) 3-3 Bon Accord (51)

1 Hausrath, Daniel (2537) 1-0 Bremner, Adam (2193)
2 Levin, Felix (2513) ½-½ Olson, Hamish (2055)
3 Saltaev, Mihail (2483) 1-0 Maxwell, Daniel (2046)

Peter Wells appears to be winning again. Boards 4 and 6 look difficult but otherwise White Rose seem to be doing quite well.

Peter Wells a pawn up and +1.89 against Nepomniachtchi in the Exchange Grunfeld. Unfortunately 15 moves from the time control White has five minutes left, Black one hour.

He made it to 40 intact :) Time scramble (and position!) on board 5 very scary indeed.
