Great fighting games on both sides. I just hoped Dubov would be here showing his best chess but unfortunately he is in Berlin with his negative covid result to fight a Fide Grand Prix 2022 title. Any way, good games.

Eric should get rid of the mask! last two games clearly winning in each game and utter collapse. I love Eric and his YT channel. I watch everyday, but this is painful to watch. its clearly messing with oxygen to his brain. Yes its proven in multiple studies over the past 2 years. Everyone is tested for Covid. Why wear the mask at the board? ridiculous!

@Nite Moves you don't have to watch it if you are not interested. But to be fair, the original intent was to organize the normal Gibchess tournament, however, due to the pandemic, they had to cancel their original intent. So, when the existence of the event became endangered, they came up with an alternative idea of organizing a smaller event and they came up with the idea of creating an all male and all female team. So, they did not really want the event to be like this, but they wanted to organize an event. I do not really understand what the problem is. Maybe if the men beat the women some snowflakes are going to melt, but it was looking the other way around after two rounds. It's a fair fight and I respect the members of both teams.

You guys always bitch about equality for the sexes yet you still hold these events as if they should mean something
