phpHK3UvE.jpegThe St. Petersburg team won the 2013 Russian Team Chess Championship after a nail-biting final round in Sochi.

St.Petersburg were undefeated going into the final round, but lost their last match by the narrowest of margins 3½-2½ to Rostov. That opened the door for nearest rivals Malakhit, but they could only draw 3-3 with SHSM Moscow. So St. Petersburg took first place on superior board points.

In the women's competition, Yugra took first place on superior board points from SHSM Moscow.

    @Am1nOS, probably Caruana was hoping to mate him before he could use his passed pawns.

    Very Good games especially from candidates players Svidler and Grischuk..

    But How Caruana understimated the move 12.. hxg4 and then in 14.. gxf3 ???? He underestimated Svidler really.. resulting with  strong connected passed pawn in move 18.. g4. And finally these become 3 at move 35.. e4 ???

    3 CONNECTED PASSED PAWNS ??? Yayyyyyyy !!!
