European Team Championship – update and reviews

In round 10, we drew 2-2 with Lithuania. This leave it all to play for in the final round against Portugal – if we win, we go through to the playoffs.

Victor Chow has been reviewing all the matches, which is not only very useful for the players involved, but all South African players should be able to benefit from the comments that Victor provides. All game reviews have been uploaded to the European Team Championship page for 2014/15

South Africa beats Bulgaria 4-0

In what was certainly our best result of the Pandanet tournament so far, our players pulled off a 4-0 win. This meant we switched places with Bulgaria and are now in 2nd place. If we manage to win our remaining two matches, we will be in the promotion playoffs.

Not only did we have to battle our strong opponents, we had to deal with stage 3 load shedding, so some of our players couldn’t make it on the night. Fortunately, we had strong reserves in place. Congratulations to the players:

Victor Chow
Ben Gale
Andrew Davies
Andre Connell

South Africa beats Greece 4-0

In what was a good night for South Africa, we beat Greece 4-0. Some of the games were close, and we were perhaps a little fortunate to win, but we’ve certainly had our share of unlucky losses. The other results on the night were very much in our favour, with our main rivals, the UK and Bulgaria, dropping points, which slightly improves our chances of claiming the runner up (playoff) spot. Lithuania have also emerged as a potential rival for a top two spot.

The team on the night was
Andrew Davies
John Leuner
Andre Connell
Lloyd Rubidge

The detailed results with game records are available on the Pandanet site

South Africa draws 2-2 with Croatia

In a rather disappointing result, we only managed a draw against Croatia. However, the results on the night still leave us with a mathematical chance of claiming the runner up spot, assuming we win all our remaining games 4-0. Unlikely but not impossible.

South Africa beats Kazakhstan 3-1

Our goal to achieve runner-up spot is still intact after our 3-1 victory against Kazakhstan last night. The load shedding started at the same time as the games, fortunately none of our team were in an impacted area. The results and game records are available here

SA loses to UK in Pandanet Champs

We suffered a disappointing defeat 3-1 to the UK last night. The most surprising defeat was Victor Chow losing to Andrew Simons 4d, while John’s rather lucky win (from a lost position) was balanced by Ben’s unfortunate defeat from a won position. This defeat has destroyed our chance of winning the league, but we will try our best to get the runner-up place.
