Armenia won the and Olympiads.

Oh no, there's been an error

In recent years Armenia have been the perennial overachievers — a solid squad and great team spirit has led them to perfomances far above their seeding. However with Levon Aronian scaling the dizzy heights of the club, Armenia can no longer be considered underdogs. Petrosian will likely be used in situations where the team feel that a win is required from Board 4 with either colour. Won the first two Olympiads in and headed by Geza Maroczy.

Also won in Hungary have a strong chess history and their tradition of producing strong players continues to the present day. Peter Leko was one game away from becoming World Champion and all the top players fear his ability, even if his personal life might have took some of the edge from his game. Zoltan Almasi and the best female player of all time, Judit Polgar, will be looking to mix it up to fight for victories with their combative styles on the middle boards.

Have participated in 8 Olympiads with a highest finish of 6th place in If Armenia can be described as perennial over-achievers, then their fierce rivals Azerbaijan are the perennial under-achievers. However this year I think they will perform very strongly. Teimour Radjabov seems to have found an extra dimension to his game in the last 18 months or so while Vugar Gashimov has had experience of mixing it in elite tournaments which will have only helped his play.

Rauf Mamedov has not found himself on the team this year so Eltaj Safarli and Gadir Guseynov will be required to perform well on the lower boards. Azerbaijan will be looking to carry their European Team Championship form 1st in , 2nd in to Istanbul. The highest seeded non-European team, China will be looking for a strong showing in Istanbul. China have had a lot of strong players in the last ten years, but nobody has yet made it to the elite level. However the rest of the team are known for having up and down performances. All the players have played a lot of chess recently. Ding Liren has played 60 standard games and 35 quickplay games since May.

Their team is full of experience and know-how and no-one exemplifies this better than World Championship Challenger Boris Gelfand.

Gelfand demonstrated superb preparation to limit the chances of Vishy Anand, one of the greatest players of all time and will be a tough opponent to beat for any of the top boards. Nigel Short was part of the s heyday when England won 3 silver medals and a bronze. England have also made an interesting decision to put the recently crowned British Champion Gawain Jones ahead of former world Championship Challenger Nigel Short.

Short has spoken of his lack of desire to play super-GMs at this stage in his career and I am sure that Jones will seize upon his chance to play some very strong players on Board 2. England will be hoping to improve on their below-par showings in the last few big team tournaments.

Second-placed Wesley So also got a win, though, which means Carlsen still has a mere half point lead in Zagreb. Meanwhile, Anish Giri inflicted Shakhriyar Mamedyarov's third defeat of the event. Express report. Every single match will have a winner: if the classical game ends in a draw Armageddon will follow, White has ten minutes, Black seven, but White needs to win.

Never saw the the book, it is hard to find. Do you recall? Lasker portrays him as a self-important hack who called himself a "theoretician" because he couldn't really play, and whose published variations were unreliable for that reason. Most of Lasker's trash talk comes in the context of a game in which he wiped out Yates thanks to the latter's ill-advised decision to follow some of Krause's published analysis.

To hear Lasker tell it, he and Teichmann had thought the Krause analysis ridiculous on its face, sat down to analyze it, and found a bust rather easily.
