Minnesota Blizzard Fin-Nagle Buenos Aires Krakens
W-O-W!!! IM Sean Nagle set a truly remarkable PRO Chess League record this week, scoring 4/4 as a board four for the Minnesota Blizzard. Almost any credible performance from the remaining boards would have won the match, but the Blizzard looked sturdy on all boards and got great play from IM Daniel Gurevich on board three as well.
The Blizzard are now 2/2 as a team with a dominant performance this week, and a victory last week over the 2017 champions, the Saint Louis Arch Bishops. So far they look like the best team in the Atlantic Division.
Here is one of Nagle's exciting wins, a clever exploitation of a vulnerable rook.
