Amsterdam Mosquitos Massacre London Towers
Something is very wrong in London. The Amsterdam Mosquitos massacred the London Towers today 14-2 in a decidedly lopsided rout. Yes, you read that score correctly. London has now lost five matches in a row.
By the third round it was already over. Amsterdam clenched the match with a ridiculous score of 10-2 with one round to spare. Commentator IM Lawrence Trent was heart broken and had some choice words for his compatriots. Boards one and two for Amsterdam lived the dream and scored perfectly, while boards one and two for London each scored one point. By the end, that's all the points London would collect.
The nightmare began in round one, when GM Gawain Jones lost to Amsterdam's board-four FM Jasel Lopez.
At least in round two, Jones played a very entertaining game!
