Reykjavik Puffins Punish Stockholm Snowballs

Reykjavik Puffins Punish Stockholm Snowballs


In a strong showing, the Reykjavik Puffins punished the Stockholm Snowballs 10-6. The pugnacious Puffins could not be stopped today with strong scores on their top three boards (3.5/4, 3/4, 3.5/4 respectively).

Watch GM Johann Hjartarson entertain commentators IM Lawrence Trent and WGM Jennifer Shahade with a lovely combination in round three against GM Evgenij Agrest.

Trent had a little fun at the expense of GM Georg Meier, given that Meier's style is quite positional and methodical. Has Meier delivered checkmate in the past three years? Spoiler Alert: Yes.

It just wasn't Stockholm's day. Meier must have been rattled by Trent's jabs because in round four he actually hung his queen! Goes to show even the best players in the world are mortal.
