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.
