St Benildus will be back in European action in Halkidiki in Greece this October after a couple of other clubs declined their spots – and if the draw goes the same way as it did in Turkey, round 2 will see an intriguing clash between Constantin and…Magnus Carlsen!
There is, as hinted at yesterday, a revision to tomorrow’s club championships finale.
For those looking to dust off ahead of the new leagues season, or to gain a final few points to try jump a board, there are two weekenders coming up in Dublin in September.
After a summer where Benildus players saw action in Dresden, Paisley, Andorra and Stillorgan, autumn kicks off with action coming from the European Youth Championships in Riga.
Round 3 saw three players starting on 2/2 – but only one of those made it to 3/3 as Gerry exacted revenge for his final-round defeat last year.
