Such a lousy coverage. I wonder why didn’t they commission GM Maurice Ashley and the rest of the St. Louis Chess Club team to do the coverage?
What a problematic Levon Aronian.
Team Philippines (PHI seed 54) is set to face is Jersey (JSI seed 151) in Round 6 of the Open Section of Batumi Chess Olympiad 2018. With JSI’s lineup, I guess PHI can handle this easily.
I have come to the personal conclusion that while all artists are not chess players, all chess players are artists.
Only four teams remain perfect 5 points after 5 rounds of Batumi Chess Olympiad 2018.
Check out the full ranking after round 5 here.
The 54th seed Philippines, with an average ELO of 2453, suffered a disappointing loss against the 102nd seed Lebanon, average ELO 2222.
