There was a remarkable game played yesterday in the Chinese League between Ding Liren – who was at the European Club Cup with Benildus last month – and Jinshi Bai; it’s being hailed as one of the greatest attacking games for many years. You can watch through the game here; it’s well worth it.
The draw for the final round of the club championships, as well as the current standings (including tie break) is now available.
All three club championship debutantes fell to defeat as round 1 ended in pretty much the same way it started – with upsets.
In case you’re looking for information about the charity blitz, it’s on Wednesday Feb 25th at 7:30 pm, and all other details are correct in this post.
Note that entry is capped at 64 players.
A couple of the lead runners in the Club Championships were off getting extra practice in Dún Laoghaire at the weekend.
