With board 1 also drawn, there's a lot depending on John Nunn. I have faith we won't finish worse than 2-2.NickFaulks wrote:Looks like England are going for the old win with White, draw with Black. Speelman's done his bit. Trouble is, I rather like the look of Black on board four.
edit More so now, if Keith really had to play 18.Rd2, then something had gone very wrong.
It's a pity we cannot see how the second team and the Scots are doing until the round is over.
It's good to see the Austrians giving Russia a good fight in the 65+ section. They are hosts for the Senior Teams in July so will want to do well.
The Russians put Vasiukov (who's over 80) on top board, maybe because they reckon he will get more short draws then on his reputation than some of the others.
