Marseille Migraines And Reykjavik Puffins Draw Even


One Word. WOW. Don't let the final match score fool you, this was the most exciting match today in the Central Division.

The drama seemed to emanate from whichever game GM Etienne Bacrot was playing. After dropping his first two games to IM Bragi Thorfinnsson and IM Bjorn Thorfinnsson, rated 273 and 330 lower than Bacrot respectively, he returned for redemption in round four and saved the match for the Migraines, defeating GM Helgi Olafsson with the black pieces in a well-coordinated mating attack.

His round three win against GM Hjorvar Steinn Gretarsson wasn't too shabby either.
