In last round I analyze the game of the new European champion. Italy won all their matches in section 50+! Also second place for Women Russia leaves no doubt. Thanks to the today’s difficult win against Finland, the Belgians won the bronze medals. Both Polish teams won today and finish in not bad fifth and sixth places.
In 65+ section we only battle for the third place today, behind Russia and Germany. Blind destiny pairs Sweden and Finland with second teams from their own countries. Both teams won relatively easy and finally Sweden take bronze medals. Some chance to good place had also Scotland. They fight very bravely with silver medalists from Germany, but finally loses 1.5-2.5 and ends on fifth place.
Thank you to the players for whole tournament and nice games which I can analyze. Thank you also to organizers for giving me opportunity to work with you. It was busy, but primarily interesting and nice week.
