European Team Championships

The very strong European Teams Championships is starting in the next day or two in Halkidiki, Greece. As with most European events it is very strong at the top of the field, with 4 teams (Russia, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, and Armenia) having a rating average over 2700. Out of the 38 teams in the open section, only 4 have an average rating below 2400!
It will be a 9 round event, and I am assuming it will be scored on match points (rather than game points). The website for the event is here, and offers all the usual goodies (live games, pgn files etc)
