2020 FIDE Online Olympiad Top Division

 The 2020 FIDE Online Olympiad gets super serious tonight, with the Top Division starting. There are 40 teams broken up into pools of 10 teams, playing a round robin over the next 3 days. The top 3 teams from each pool then go into a knock out, with the winner of each pool going straight into the quarter finals, while teams 2 and 3 play a match against the 3rd and second placed teams from the other pools, to determine to other quarter finalists. The it is a straight knockout until a single winner is determined.

Pool A begins at 6pm this evening (Canberra time), with the next pools starting at 3 hour intervals. You can watch the action at chessbomb, or if you have a account, then this link should work as well
