Stockholm Snowballs Ice Marseille Migraines In Cliffhanger

Stockholm Snowballs Ice Marseille Migraines In Cliffhanger


The Central Division was full of drama today. In perhaps the most thrilling match, the Stockholm Snowballs eked out a razor-thin victory versus the Marseille Migraines with a 8.5-7.5 final score. There were so many exciting moments between the teams' superstars GM Georg Meier, GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave, and the inimitable GM Baadur Jobava, it's difficult to select a highlight!

In round three, don't miss the thrilling opposite-color-bishop ending between Meier vs Vachier-Lagrave. A sweet victory not only for Stockholm but also for commentator WGM Jen Shahade who won a bet with fellow contributor (and profligate gambler) IM Lawrence Trent. Two boxes of chocolates in the mail!

A match summary wouldn't be complete without a game featuring Stockholm's board-one spitfire, GM Baadur Jobava, who can always be counted on for sizzling play. However, in the fourth round he faced GM Maxime Vachier-Lagrave with the black pieces and ran straight into a beautiful piece sacrifice.
