Spanish Team Championship
Spanish Team-Ch underway
Considered one of Europe’s strongest team leagues, the Spanish team championships are taking place right now in Linares (14 to 20 August). Both the Honor division title and the 1st division title are at stake. You can find more information HERE. In addition, numerous LIVE sites carry the event (check my side bar for links)
I present two games today from this event. Game-1 features Canada’s Eric Hansen (GM,2614) against Russia’s Mikhail Antipov (GM, 2580). An exciting tactical crush.
Game-2, however, is more of a positional grind, between France’s superstar Etienne Bacrot (GM 2715) and the Ukrainian star Alexander Areschenko (GM 2652). Very instructive, even the mutual mistakes in time trouble!
