Perfect Iturrizaga Leads Champions To Victory Over Sopranos

Perfect Iturrizaga Leads Champions To Victory Over Sopranos


GM Eduardo Iturrizaga was the only board one to achieve a perfect score in the Atlantic Division in week two of the PRO Chess League. His good play lead the Miami Championsip to victory. Also notable this week was the addition of the Champions' champion, Nicholas Rosenthal who played board four for the victorious Saint Louis Arch Bishops in the 2017 season. He did not particularly impress this week, scoring one point, but good performances in future from him, may make the Champions one of the best teams in the league.

Despite Iturrizaga's performance, we can't resist concluding our summary with this gorgeous move from GM Alexander Lenderman. It's sure to be a game of the week contender.
