Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers Stop The Webster Windmills

The Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers defeated the Webster Windmills by a score of 8.5-7.5. The matchup of the #1 and #2 teams in the Atlantic division did not disappoint! Pittsburgh not only upset the previously undefeated Webster team, but also moves into a tie for first place with Webster with a 6.5/8 score on the season! Webster’s first loss of the year may sting a bit, but both teams are locks for the playoffs.

One unusual factoid for this match was that the young GM Awonder Liang of the Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers actually played this match at Webster’s campus!

The hero of the match for Pittsburgh was not Liang or GM Shabalov, but FM Edward Song! The 4th board for the Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers put up a 3/4 performance, leading the Pawngrabbers to victory. Here is FM Edward Song’s victory over GM Tamas Banusz in a wonderfully played English Hedgehog.
