Mumbai Movers Squeak By Norway Gnomes
The Mumbai Movers Squeak By Norway Gnomes in an exciting back and forth match with a final score 8.5-7.5. The Gnomes were down after rounds one and two but gathered themselves and made a valiant push to victory, only stopping short in a heartbreaking round four.
Of course, one strong player missing from today's match was World Champion GM Magnus Carlsen who is presently tied for first in Tata Steel Masters. Today being a rest day, and with three rounds to go in Wijk aan Zee, he made the prudent decision to take it easy.
Board ones GM Diptayan Ghosh and GM Jon Ludvig Hammer delivered strong performances for their respective teams. Board two for Norway, GM Simen Agdestein, had a rough day, but nearly delivered a win for Norway in the final seconds of round two. Watch Hammer react as time trouble ensues!
