Nov-16-13  waustad: <USA team is not playing in the *European* Team Championship.>Though several countries that are usually considered to be in Western Asia are considered European for chess purposes.
Nov-16-13  waustad: Sunday they begin play 4 hours earlier than usual.

  Stonehenge: It looks like Grischuk blundered against Giri.
Nov-16-13  Refused: Yeah, Grischuk looks to be a bit worse. But he is a very tenacious defender.

Meanwhile it looks like France will at least not lose to Armenia. With MVL on board 2 they might even win it.

Nov-16-13  Refused: And Bacrot has lost the thread and the game against Aronian. And suddenly Armenia is in the driver's seat.
Nov-16-13  Refused: MVL equalized, with a draw on board 3 it's down to Sagrissian - Tkachiev

Meanwhile, Grischuk held the draw against Giri, Smeets drew Andreikin. And Morozevich seems to losing against van Kampen.
And the Russian hopes rest on Svidler to avoid another loss.

Nov-16-13  fisayo123: Impressive win from MVL that.
Nov-16-13  Refused: Grandelius is giving Topalov a hard time.
Nov-16-13  waustad: If Shengelia can convert his better endgame, Austria would beat Spain, despite being outrated on all 4 boards.
Nov-16-13  Refused: Meanwhile the Russian womens' team might get away with a lucky win vs. Georgia.

On board 4 Javakhishvili seems to have dropped (a lot of) her advantage against Girya. Girya still has work to do to hold the draw, but a few moves ago it looked like she was just lost.

Nov-16-13  fisayo123: What did L'Ami just do against Svidler? 43..Rc1+?????????????
Nov-16-13  waustad: <Refused>Grandelius has been giving a lot of people hard times. At +2 with a 2671 performance rating going into today's game he's played quite well.
Nov-16-13  fisayo123: L'Ami should apologize to his team after that move, because now, the Russians will escape with a draw. Hard to imagine a GM will play that in such a position!
Nov-16-13  Refused: <fisayo123: What did L'Ami just do against Svidler? 43..Rc1+?????????????>

Apparently he has not studied Tiviakov'S games carefully enough. Well a 2-2 is still a good result against the Russian Men's team. But ofc they could have beaten them today. I am still assuming van Kampen will win vs. Morozevich.

Nov-16-13  Refused: OMG; Svidler won, and more surprisingly, van Kampen has let Morozevich of the hook. And thus the Russian team won a match they should have lost.

  nok: Dutch: fail.
Nov-16-13  optimuswise: Jobava is on fire!
Nov-16-13  Chess for life: Round 9 (final) pairings:
France (13) vs. Russia (11)
Azerbaijan (13) vs. Armenia (12)
2 pts for a match win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss.
Nov-16-13  fisayo123: Really bizarre turn of events in Netherlands-Russia. Suspicious even.

  Natalia Pogonina: Congratulations to the Ukrainian women's chess team on winning the event with a round to go and thus "inheriting" our title. I guess we are facing each other tomorrow though. Should be exciting!
Nov-16-13  lakers4sho: Van Kampen makes an easy mistake, time trouble I suppose.
Nov-16-13  waustad: Best of luck Natalia. I couldn't root for you in this one: N Pogonina vs V Exler, 2013 but I've lived in Austria and I've never been to Russia. She may be the reigning champion, but this game may have been deer in the headlights. She's 0-4 vs the only Austrian close to your rating to the best of my knowledge.
Nov-17-13  waustad: That should be "Austrian woman" not Austrian, since Marcus Ragger and Davi(d/t) Shengelia are both much higher rated. I hesitate to do a copy/paste correction since then links are usually broken. In any case congratulations to this year's champion Peter Schreiner on an excellent result so far. Perhaps with a win tomorrow he'll get GM norm, I don't know. The only Austrian posted GM norm now is Robert Kreisl, but there could be more where nobody paid the fee yet. Please post more if I am in error.
Nov-17-13  virginmind: Chessbase still lists this as an 11 rounds event.
Nov-17-13  kingfu: How do the Ukrainians do it? They win BOTH women's and men's team events. Alexander Ipatov missed winning the Junior Championship by a half point and is definitely a rising star.

I want to be a Ukrainian when I grow up.
