Minnesota Blizzard Freeze Out Saint Louis Arch Bishops
The Blizzards just edged out last season's champions, the Saint Louis Arch Bishops, 8.5-7.5. Boards one and two for the Arch Bishops failed to deliver, scoring a total of 4.5 out of 8 possible points, whereas IM Andrew Tang on the Blizzards' board one scored a near perfect 3.5 all on his own.
Watch Tang play an excellent 79-move game against a higher rated GM Dariusz Swiercz (what's 150 points really?) in round three. With the black pieces no less.
