Our team bags half a dozen advancements in a row - what an achievement!
last Thursday our Blockchain chess team fought its 6th battle of the "Lichess Team Liga" (more about this event here) and we could advance to the next level yet another time, this time even with a first place and 14 points lead to the second! Wow!
Here is the stunning series of the 5 last tournaments (incl. the one tomorrow):
We played in liga 7A, with 102 players from 10 teams! I had a strong start but later it weakened. Fortunately rescue troops came just in time (@mundocuriosidad, @jaki01, @dhilan04 and others) and brought us back on the top!
Here is one of my better games, a crazy one and with a lot of mutual blunders, where I intentionally sacrificed a pawn with the good old b4, and had a good initiative, later I sacrificed an exchange, too, but fortunately it worked out well.
The final standings:
Thanks a lot to ALL participants: @mundocuriosidad - our top scorer this time, @jaki01, @dhilan04, @kintokris, @rosmarly, @stranger27, @rafaelaquino, @lighteye, @grafo07 and @rodrook. To the 7 top-ranked ones I sent already 1 Hive each, to @mundocuriosidad as topscorer 2!
The next event starts tomorrow Sunday, 4th June, 18h GMT.
It will be "Superblitz" (3+0) and most likely supertough! We will be in liga 6A (ranked up from last time). As always, the more from our team participate, the higher our chances will be to get a good result and improve in the rankings!
How far can we get?
Mode: 3+0 (3 minutes per game, no increment per move), 100 min. rated arena, win streaks & berserk allowed
