As you have noticed, the Chess Olympiad in Chennai happened. We had several members playing there, their results are given below.
But first, let’s congratulate our occasional guest coach GM Ivan Sokolov, for leading the Uzbekistan team to victory in the Open Section. Quite possibly the greatest upset of all time. You will be happy to hear that he is back with a camp on September 22-25.
We had other friends of the academy in action at the Olympiad and we will hear from them in lessons soon. IM Andrew Greet already gave a class on Saturday. Some are already scheduled this week, with GM Swayams, one of the trainers of the Indian women’s team, starting tomorrow. GM Stany, a member of the training team for the India B team will be on later this week.
Lim Zhuo Ren underperformed a bit while paying board one for Malaysia.
Scotland, with 3 members out of 5: Andrew, Hamish, and Frederick.
Sabino once again played for Italy and gained a few rating points, 6½/9.
Jonathan gained a few rating points playing for Wales.
Andre played for Portugal and finished with 7/10.
England finished 10, with two of your trainers losing a bit of rating.
Tarun with 6½/10 did not get his norm, but he did win rating points.
Trisha as board one for Ireland, with 5/10 did not have a good tournament, unfortunately; she lost a lot rating, but nothing that cannot be recovered!
Conor secured his GM norm with a rating performance of 2704! A fantastic result for Conor, who finished 5th on his board, ahead of some very well-known names!
Sam didn’t have a very good tournament with 4½/7. We all here heartbroken after his game against Hovhannisyan. Here is a video recap in case you missed it.
