SIMPLECHESS

European Club Championship

Christine's impressions of the third round.
Economist have warmed up and are now going from strength to strength.
In the ladies event Samaia Tbilisi stay ahead despite only drawing their match.

The top encounter between Economist-Sgseu Saratov(1) and Novoborsky Sk(14), was a one-sided affair with Economist dominating 5-1. Much closer was the 2nd match, A.Dandzo Pgmb(11) against Ural Svedrdlovskaya(2) which ended all-square, 3-3.

The third match involved Sk Slovan Bratislava(26) against fourth seed Osg Baden Baden (led by GM Movsesian,S (2711) who so far has scored a modest 1.5 pts, whereas his team mates all have 100%!!) and the strong German team won convincingly 5-1. Bratislava's point being that of Ftacnik's, see the notable games section.
