2. 3.5 points
3. 3.5 points

and shows how difficult it was.

Black Peru rgpchess 1-0 India pingupenguin White
White France cjldx 0-1 Japan Slek Black
Black Germany brunftbert 0-1  rodnojo White

TL77::R4 – A narrow win … but second match win against the same opponent!

The only thing that I would like to comment based on an unplayed game on this round is that TL is about playing games and not winning them on the rules. In my oppinion this should be the mentality and the attitude towards TL (especially during a pandemic situation or due to health reasons).
