phpueItRV.jpegThe all-conquering Baden-Baden team had already secured victory in the German chess league, the Schachbundesliga, on Friday, but with two more match victories this weekend they scored a remarkable season whitewash - winning all fifteen of their matches!

Baden-Baden defeated Eppingen 6½-1½ and Hockenheim 5½-2½ to complete an eighth successive title in style.

Their nearest scrape was their 4½-3½ win against rivals Mülheim in the 5th round of the season.

    The Bacrot-Tiviakov game is an incredibly instructive masterpiece.

    I know that winning every match in the Bundesliga is amazing, but isn't Baden-Baden's team stacked?

    The Bundasliga has long been a treasure trove of GM play ever since the practice of "outsourcing" the teams began, I think in the '80s.  And the match games are usually included in the TWIC weekly databases.
