Poland vs Russia🇷🇺 2,5-1,5! Great day for The Team and especially for Jacek Tomczak (victory vs Kramnik!) and Kamil Dragun (vs Jakovenko)!

 

David Llada ♔ ‏ This is what a professional chess player should look like. Kudos to the Polish Chess Federation - and of course to @lotto_pl for their support.

Batumi Chess Olympiad 2018 ‏ Guess the chess player!

Nona Gaprindashvili loves chess. She still has so much energy at 77 years old. While waiting for dinner to be served, she played blitz. After a few games, they had to ask her to stop so dinner could be served 🙂

The Ugandan team, lead by the world famous Phiona Mutesi, wanted to have a photo taken with the US stars GM Hikaru and Fabiano Caruana.

Olimpiu G. Urcan Poland downs Russia in a spectacular duel. THIS is why we watch the Olympiad: an underdog's triumph, an elite player's despair and a billionaire's rage.
