Rising Stars lead against Experienced Grandmasters in NH Chess Tournament

GM David Howell
Hello Everyone,

In a team event one win is enough. And, one win by David Howell of the Rising Stars was enough to give them a lead over the Experience team at the NH Chess Tournament in the second round.

Howell beat Ljubomir Ljubojevic while the other four games were drawn. The overall score is now in favour of the Rising Stars at 5½- 4½.

You can find more details and photos at the official website here. They also have videos and nice detailed news reports.
