Dallas Destiny Overtakes Rio Grande Ospreys

Dallas Destiny Overtakes Rio Grande Ospreys

Jan 26, 2018, 9:20 AM |

In this season's "Texas Showdown", the Dallas Destiny triumphed over the scrappy Rio Grande Ospreys 9-7 in another fighting Pacific Division encounter. GM Conrad Holt led the way for Dallas on board two, scoring an impressive 3.5/4. With any great score, a little luck is sometimes involved. Watch below as Holt's round one opponent, IM Guillermo Vazquez, repeatedly misses mate-in-one and eventually gets mated himself. The commentators cannot believe their eyes!

Missing checkmate in one has been the theme of the Pacific Division Week 2
