Pittsburgh Pawnsgrabbers Defeat Montreal Chessbrahs

Pittsburgh Pawnsgrabbers Defeat Montreal Chessbrahs


14-year-old GM Awonder Liang must be one of the most valuable free agents in the PRO Chess League. As board two for the impressing Pittsburgh Pawgrabbers, he scored a perfect 4/4 to lead his team to victory over the Montreal Chessbrahs.

Barely avoiding relegation last year, the Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers look like a force to be feared this year. Meanwhile the Montreal Chessbrahs seem to really be missing GMs Fabiano Caruana and Li Chao who were so impressive on a shared board one last year. Here is one of Liang's several nice wins - a miniature against Chessbrah fourth-board IM Michael Kleinman.
