Olympiad Update (Wed 2.10pm)

Well done to Una O’Boyle, who has just turned around a game where she was a piece down with – seemingly – no hope! She persevered despite the odds and eventually produced a series of queen-side pawns which black’s knight was unable to stop. See game at: http://ugra-chess.com/liveboard?gameid=1000080533&tmnt=2

The Irish women’s team have produced probably their best display of the tournament so far with wins also for Elisabeth and Nicola and a draw on board 1 for Emily. This was a great result, well done!

The Irish men are losing to Colombia. Sam Collins drew when his opponent forced perpetual, so he keeps his unbeaten record and can still achieve a GM norm. His opponent today was another GM.
