    Open team wins 3.5-0.5 against Albania and the women win 2.5-1.5 against Colombia.

    The Open team play Chile who we are higher rated than so hopefully should beat.

    The Women's team play the Netherlands which will be a challenge.

    Both teams have a chance to finish well. Chile should be more than beatable. Holland women's team is stronger than it has ever been (with new players emerging to play alongside the veterans) but there is a chance. If we put up a fight against USA, Holland is not beyond reach.

    Curious that Aronian has been benched by USA for today's round after also missing the previous round. He's not doing so well but that's a big call for a must-win match. Have we heard if he's unwell? Or maybe it's a device to give So the white pieces.

    Looking at the standings, he is possibly ruing his decision to switch federation from Armenia.

    By my calculations Giang gets a WIM norm today if she somehow manages to beat Lanchava with black. It would just be a 9 game norm, 20 game Olympiad norms were abolished after Baku 2016.

    Bobby made short work of that 2500+ rated opponent.

    Yes it was a very nice game

    However Anton has lost and Justin draws. Temur's position is totally drawn and I am not sure who is trying to win. So we will draw.

    it looks like the women are losing, perhaps 3-1.

    In Julia's game (which looks like being her one and only loss) her opponent played ...Ba8 one move and ....Bh8 the next.

    Uzbekistan look well placed to win their match and the Olympiad. In the Women's, India have lost and looks like they will be leapfrogged by Georgia and Ukraine (not sure which of those will get the better final tiebreak).

    I wonder what odds you could have got before the olympiad for team usa to not pick up a single medal.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    Terrific Olympiad that showcased the next generation. Abdusattorov, Sargissian, and Gukesh in particular look like potential world championship contenders. Shame Firouzja wasn't there. Bobby Cheng had a great Olympiad, finishing near the top of Board 3 players, and the overall Australia performed well in both Open and Women's competitions.

    Gabriel Sargissian is 38 years old.

    Bobby Cheng certainly had a great Olympiad, he performed at 2713 according to chess-results which put him 7th best performance on board 3.

    Temur Kuybokarov had a brilliant first hakf of the Olympiad but faded a little bit in the second but his performance was still very good.

    Julia Rynova had a good performance on board 1 almost going undefeat. Her last round loss was against Roebers who is 16 years old and performed over 2500 in the Olympiad.

    Giang Nguyen was very good on board 5 clearly out performing her rating. She had the 6th best performance on board 5.
