    Congratulations to Aus team on historic win Vs Norway

    A great achievement and a great write up by Jack Rogers, supported by great photos (one by the mother of a Rooty Hill junior, WGM Jilin Zhang)! Made my night.

    According to the chess24 feed Yuan just hung a rook and went from completely winning to completely losing. Match looks lost already though

    Yeah it seems like that happened unfortunately.

    Temur might draw but it seems that is all

    So 3.5/0.5 against for the men with Temur picking a good draw.

    The women have lost 2.5-1.5.

    So sad, he was playing such a nice game. At least it was in a match we had lost anyway.

    Finland are decent; their top 4 are IMs and their board 1 is undefeated so far. UAE are performing above rating but still sub-2000.

    Yes, heartbreaking for Sam, having defended for so long and brought the position back from the brink. If he doesn't "premove" blunder there, USA takes the outright lead.
    So what's your excuse? For running like the devil's chasing you?

    See you in another life, brotha.

    So far...not looking fantastic for team Australia...Justin is having big advantage but board 1, Teimur appears to be in trouble.

    That looks bad but it's possibly not the worst - the loser has in fact won one game (from four starts); unsurprisingly the loser of that game is on 0/8.

    India has no superstarts other than Vishi who is not playing as for others...they got about 15 top 100 players who are mostly young and ambicious so all teams are strong.
