The Armenia Eagles edged out the Estonia Horses by the slimmest of margins today with a 8.5-7.5 final score. They became the third team today in the Eastern Division to qualify for this year's playoffs. Estonia, although still holding up as the most likely fourth team to qualify, must battle it out next week to confirm their spot.

The difference maker clearly was board three, GM Karen Grigoryan who outscored his teammates (as well his opponents) with a very fine 3.5/4 beat down. Check out his round one game against Estonia's board two, GM Ottomar Ladva.
