Team USA beats Russia


Recommended Posts

In these day where we disagree on almost everything (gold, macro, politics, and religion I suppose) is it too much of a stretch to unite once again against an old foe? And who likes Putin anyway.


Team USA just pulled an historic victory over the old bad bear in their own game: chess. Almost like being in those great battles from the Brezhnev times: hockey, basketball, and Bobby Fischer of course.


In passing, Team USA threw the Chess Olympiad into utter chaos with four teams tying for the lead with 3 rounds to go: Russia, USA, Armenia and China. Great game by Hikaru Nakamura, #5 in the world and fan of all things Vancouver, beating former champion Vladimir Kramnik. Here are the games with computer evaluations and there is a feed with live commentary.
