Russian Team Chess Championship 2010

Hello everyone!

3 rounds to go at the Russian Team Championships. Tomorrow Monday April 5 will be a key match: the Moscow team (Kosteniuk, Kovalevskaya, Gunina, Matveeva, Girya) will play the Giprorechtrans team (Zhukova, Munguntuul, Zaiats, Vasilevich, Fominykh).

Since there is an odd number of teams, each team does not play a round, and that's the case of Giprorechtrans, who is "off" the last round. So if tomorrow, Giprotechtrans wins, they will be able to solidify their edge. If they lose, the fight for first place will be open to 2-3 teams.

Follow the games live on ChessBomb (7 AM New York time).

    I have deeply annotated Alexandra's game against Stefanova and posted the analysis to my blog at using the program Chessviewer Deluxe. Chessviewer Deluxe is at the bottom of the first page and a link to instructions for using Chessviewer Deluxe is on the side panel of my first blog page also. This game is game number 36 in the Chessviewer Deluxe Game index.
