Estonia Horses Inch Out Riga Magicians

Estonia Horses Inch Out Riga Magicians


It was a squeaker! The Estonia Horses inched out the Riga Magicians 8.5 to 7.5 in one of the closest matches of the day. Board one for the Horses, GM Alex Onischuk, had a tough day, with a total score of 1.5, but with a little help from his teammates, the Horses can be satisfied.

Round one proved to be crucial as a 386 Elo difference was apparently no problem for FM Ritvars Reimanis as he upset the Horses' board one, GM Alex Onischuk:

In round 2, GM Alex Onischuk took revenge in a beautifully played rout against the Magicians' free agent, GM Noel Studer:
