The Ljubljana Turtles were considered the underdogs against the strong Stockholm Snowballs, but the Turtles grabbed an early lead in the match and kept the pressure on their opponents.

With tensions at their maximum in the final round, the match ultimately came down to a key moment in the board four matchup. The Snowballs were in position to win and have a real shot at closing the match to 8-8 when they would advance as the higher seed.

In a totally winning position, Orndahl made a horrific blunder. Any chess player can surely relate to this pain.
