Cannes Blockbusters Overwhelm Amsterdam Mosquitos


The Cannes Blockbusters have a very solid team, top to bottom, and it showed today in their 9.5-6.5 win over the Amsterdam Mosquitos.

On the Blockbusters second board, GM Maxime Lagarde commanded a standout performance with three wins and a draw. In round three, he faced off against the first board of the Mosquitoes, GM David Klein. Round three proved decisive as the Mosquitos top boards fell to the Blockbusters.

In the same round, board two of the Mosquitos IM Quinten Ducarmon fell to GM Matthieu Cornette in a Caro Kann miniature. This one-two-punch proved to be a knock out blow.
