Riga Magicians Weather The Volga Stormbringers

Riga Magicians Weather The Volga Stormbringers


The Riga Magicians know that they’ll need a trick or two if they expect to catch the Estonia Horses in the Eastern Division. While they played many great games today, thirteen-year-old phenom GM Nodirbek Abdusattorov seemed to have cast a spell on his round one foe IM Nikita Meskovs who mysteriously went pawn grubbing and allowed an exchange sacrifice on move twenty-nine (see game below). Abdusattorov went on to win the first of his 3.5 points for the Magicians who won the match 8.5 - 7.0. 

A late lineup change cost the Volga Stormbringers a half-point penalty, starting the match at a deficit, and they struggled to get on track throughout the match.
