Webster Windmills Win The Atlantic Division

Mar 7, 2018, 6:30 PM |

The Webster Windmills defeated the Montreal ChessBrahs by a 8.5-7.5 score. Going into this match the Webster Windmills were tied for first place in the central division with the Pittsburgh Pawngrabbers. With this match win they move to 7.5/9 on the season and clinch the division!

The Montreal ChessBrahs were already out of the playoff picture for this season, but they were playing for sixth place in the division in order to avoid relegation. Unfortunately they will need to re-qualify for the 2019 season.

GM Illia Nyzhnyk had a brilliant 3.5/4 performance to lead the Webster Windmills to victory in this match. Here is a beautiful attacking game from GM Ilya Nyzhnyk over GM Ivan Saric. The attack starts on the dark squares (b2 being the main target), then the second rank is secured by two black rooks, and it is all over!
