Intercercles FEFB – 3rd playing day

Team 1 remained unbeaten, with wins by Georgi and Lena, and draws by Martin and Luis. Europchess defended first place in Division 1, and goes into the last match day with a lead of 0.5 points and a chance of winning this competition for a third time.

Team 2 suffered from various absences and could only score half a point (draw by Sergio). With only 3.5 points, the team is currently in last place, and would need a big effort and good results to maintain itself in Division 2.

Team 3 gained one point through Borin’s win and more experience on the other boards. Also with 3.5 points, Europchess is ranked 11th in Division 5.
