After the end of each TL the Hall of Fame is updated: the situation remains as it was before TL73 but we are glad to see the entrance in the Hall of Fame of our two NEW teammates Stefan from Germany and Ricardo from Peru!
Our team could not manage to take a win in this TL and we finished the tourney with a draw at the sixth round of TL74 against the team Mysterious_Rook_Moves.
Our team is still without a win after the first five rounds of TL74, we lost with the score 3-1 against the team NewBlood/Erythro.
Our team lost at the very first round of TL74 with the score 2.5-1.5 against the team Wypatrujace_Oko_Tigrana.
On board 1 marjohn had black against OliverIsaac. A technical win for white who played almost a perfect game with no tactical errors at all. He won the exchange early on and managed to convert it. Maybe black had some chances to get the draw around move 31 when he should not have allowed white to play his R on c7 .
On board 2 brunftbert played as white against Aromas . Chaos is the most appropriate word to describe the flow of this game. So many complex variations with tactical analysis needed to be processed by both players. At the end white managed to create a winning endgame but some inaccuracies let the win to slip from his hands. A fine game by our newest member of the team.
On board 3 chebein played against TwilightShifter as black. A very ambitious piece sacrifice for Black with some counter play but not enough to create a winning position. White managed to simplify the position and with a couple of blunders from his opponent he had a clear winning position.
On board 4 tschack, was playing against kliszek as white. A very attacking game by white. He took the initiative from the start of the game and after a couple of inaccuracies with the queen Black was down an exchange. Soon White attacked Black’s K-side which resulted in a won endgame. Tschack finished the game with a nice combination! An excellent win from our Swedish player!!
Despite the loss TL74 is a fun tourney to participate!!
After the end of each TL the Hall of Fame is updated: RudyRay has climbed to third place after a very fine TL!
