PRO Chess League - Week 3 Preview: San Jose Hackers vs. Rio Grande Ospreys
Tonight, the San Jose Hackers (2-0) will take on the Rio Grande Ospreys (1-1) in Week 3 of the PRO Chess League. The match starts at 6:50 PM Pacific, and once again I'll be streaming the match live on my Twitch Channel. Be sure to tune in to catch all the action as it happens, and if you want to check out previous broadcasts, please visit my new(ish) Youtube Channel!
The lineup for tonight's match is as follows:
Then in Rounds 3 and 4, San Jose will substitute in three players: GM Rauf Mamedov (Board 1), GM Zviad Izoria (Board 2), and NM Teemu Virtanen (Board 4), keeping GM Chirila on Board 3. While San Jose may be the favorite on paper, nothing can be taken for granted in the brutally competitive PRO Chess League.
