Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers Smother Montclair Sopranos


The Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers have proven adept at getting points from all boards in the PRO Chess League. Usually Awonder Liang has delivered a bevy of points on board two, but this week he was a low scorer with a somewhat more modest 2.5/4. Impressive was IM Atyula Shetty's 3/4 on board three. His victory over the Montclair Sopranos board one was an impressive strangulation.

The Sopranos got their highest score on board four as IM Thomas Bartell scored 2.5/4, including handing the Pawngrabbers board one, GM Alexander Shabalov, his only defeat as Shabalov beat the top three for the Sopranos.
