World Teams Championship

The 2019 World Teams Championship began last night in Astana. This event brings together the best teams from every continent (Asia, Europe, Americas and Africa) as well as the topped placed teams from the Olympiad. Ten teams are in each section (Open and Women's) and it is a 9 round round robin, scored on match points.
The first round saw a couple of big wins for India and China. They each scored 3.5/4 with Sweden and Azerbaijan being their respective victims. In the Inda-Sweden match, there were a couple of nice attacking wins, including this one by SS Ganguly.
