Montclair Sopranos Shake Down Montreal Chessbrahs
Two bright spots could not save the match for a Montreal ChessBrah team that suffered a horrific double catastrophe in the final round against a victorious Montclair Sopranos team. The ChessBrahs had two of the best-scoring players of the week as GM Jorden Van Foreest scored 3.5 and Elias Oussedik scored 2/4. Oussedik earned a lot of fan love when he flagged GM Sergey Erenburg in a balanced position and mistook his computer desk for a dance floor.
The Sopranos had a strong lead early in the match thanks in part to GM Aleksandr Lenderman's 3.5/4. The Chessbrahs came within striking distance with the above victory, but two near simultaneous rook blunders from GM Eric Hansen and GM-Elect Aman Hambleton.
