World Cities League: The Hague vs Santa Fe

World Cities League: The Hague vs Santa Fe

RainPiper | Ene 19, 2023
In the 4th round of the World Cities League 2023, Division 1, we play Santa Fe (Argentinia): https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1457603/games Sante Fe is potentially a very strong team. Last season, they reached the 3rd place in division 1, behind Buenos Aires and Kyiv. This season, they seem to experience recruitment problems and are trailing in all their 3 matches so far (see ranking below). Still, it's not clear whether this is only a temporary problem. We played one earl...

World Cities League: The Hague vs Kyiv

In the third round of the World Cities League 2023, Division 1, we play Kyiv: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1450549/games Kyiv is (even under the severe conditions of the war in Ukraine) one of the strongest city teams on chess.com -- so this will be a tough match. It's a bit unfortunate that this is the same opponent we are currently facing in the Cities World Cup, but these are two separate competitions so that some overlap can happen. In the Cup match, we were able to...

World Cities League: The Hague vs Prague

In the second round of the World Cities League 2023, Division 1, we play Prague: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1440739/games After the hard start against Buenos Aires (we are trailing by a large margin), Prague is another strong team to meet. In 2021, we played this team in a legendary cup match, which we lost tightly. In that match we had 64 players, the largest The Hague Team ever. If we can get close to that number (or only the 49 players from the Buenos Aires match),...
Cities World Cup: The Hague vs Kyiv

Cities World Cup: The Hague vs Kyiv

RainPiper | Okt 22, 2022
In the round of 8 of the 12th Cities World Cup 2022, we play Kyiv: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1431497/games After the round of 16, there has been a considerable delay in this competition. The responsible admin withdrew because of the war in Ukraine and no-one was prepared to follow him up. Now a new admin is found and we follow up the thread. Kyiv is one of the strongest city teams on chess.com. It's depressing that our current match takes place under war conditions ...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Buenos Aires

World Cities League: The Hague vs Buenos Aires

RainPiper | Okt 21, 2022
In the first round of the World Cities League 2023, Division 1, we play Buenos Aires: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1431375/games After several years in the sub-top of Division 2, we have promoted for the first time to Division 1. (It's sad to note that this was propelled by the exclusion and/or withdrawal of the Russian teams due to the Russian war in Ukraine.) In the first round of the new season (traditionally extending from November to July), we immediately face the ...
World Cities League: The Hague vs London

World Cities League: The Hague vs London

RainPiper | Hun 25, 2022
In the 9th and ultimate round of the World Cities League 2022, Division 2B, we play London: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1395857/games As you can see in the live ranking below, promotion to Division 1 is almost certain for The Hague. A win against London would round off of the season perfectly. Still, next season, matches will be considerably harder. So if you have some chess friends who might join the team and support us next season, try to recruit them for Team The Ha...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Brisbane

World Cities League: The Hague vs Brisbane

RainPiper | May 23, 2022
In the eighth and pre-ultimate round of the World Cities League 2022, Division 2B, we play Brisbane: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1382855/games As you can see from the live ranking below, The Hague heads for promotion to division 1. Only in the most extreme scenarios we can still fail. Brisbane is one of the stronger teams of our league and another win would underscore our ambition. Currently, we have 21 registrations each. Both teams have the potential for a considera...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Torino

World Cities League: The Hague vs Torino

RainPiper | Abr 23, 2022
In the 7th round of the World Cities League 2022, Division 2B, we play Torino: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1372827/games As you can see from the live ranking below, we are on track for promotion to Division 1. Our toughest competitor is Brisbane. So next round The Hague vs Brisbane will be particularly important and interesting (we hope). The Russian teams of Novosibirsk and Yekaterinburg have withdrawn from the WCL due to the measures taken on chess-com against Russi...
World Cities League: The Hague vs Minsk

World Cities League: The Hague vs Minsk

RainPiper | Mar 26, 2022
In the 6th round of the World Cities League 2022, Division 2B, we play Minsk: https://www.chess.com/club/matches/team-the-hague/1361565/games Setting up this match was not self-evident. The government of Belarus supports the Russian war in Ukraine, and there were voices that demanded to isolate Belarusian players and teams in the same way as Russian ones. On the other hand, it is well known that there is much sympathy with Ukraine among Belarusian people, and this is confirmed by seeing man...
