Minnesota Blizzard Chill Montreal Chessbrahs

Minnesota Blizzard Chill Montreal Chessbrahs

Feb 7, 2018, 5:42 PM |

The Minnesota Blizzard do not look like a fearsome force on paper, but after four weeks, they are the only team with a perfect score in match play. This week they bested the fan favorite Montreal Chessbrahs, and they did it in style, scoring 10.5 to the Chessbrahs 5.5.

The weakest point for the Chessbrahs proved to be their Dutch contingent as GMs Robin Van Kampen and Jorden Van Foreest combined for only 2.5/8 against the lower-rated Blizzard squad. Here's one magnificent victory from GM Nikola Mitkov against Van Kampen.

One humorous moment happened late in the match as IM Thomas Beerdsen had mate in one on the board but was focused elsewhere.
