ShSM-64 wins Russian Team Championship in Dagomys

4/10/2010 – Not the catchiest of headlines, that – but the Russian teams aren't known for their pretty names. The Championships were played in three groups, the Premier, Higher and Women's Leagues. Sergey Karjakin and Alexander Riazantsev were the top performers amongst the men (2889 and 2885), while Viktorija Cmilyte shone with a 2700 performance amongst the women. Illustrated report.
