  3. European Championship underway

Hi all,

On the 17th of december, the European championship started in Moscow. At the moment of writing, the first 4 games have been played. The Russian player IM Nicolay Germogenov ( is the sole leader with 7 points after winning from Alexander Giorgiev in round 4, former multiple world champion.
He is followed by very strong opponants with 6 points: Van IJzendoorn, Slump, Baljakin, Vatoetin, Traitelovich, Semjanjoek.

You can watch the game on the official website and I show you one below, as an imported game with computer analysis from Lidraughts.

Four games played, four draws.
