Just like last year the Ooser Schachclub Baden-Baden became club champion of Germany, in other words the winner of the Bundesliga, the stronges league in the world. By beating Werder Bremen 6-2 on Saturday, Baden-Baden secured the first spot already.

Today's match against the Hamburger SK didn't matter anymore and so a collective draw on eight boards was played. Well, this is what you'd expect when you look at the results, but after seeing the games it seems that the players did fight for a while. Still, I have the impression that at a certain moment the two team captains looked at each other and then stopped the last clocks that were still running. Surely our editor IM Merijn van Delft, who scored a valuable draw with Black against Vallejo Pons, can spread some light on this issue soon.

The final standings of the Bundesliga 2006-2007, which lasted fifteen rounds played in several weekends:

 1. OSC Baden Baden  15 27  86
