Turkey beats Algeria 7,5-0,5!
ElliThe first round in the friendly match between Turkey and Algeria turned out to be a huge success for the host team. Playing the first day with 8 whites Turkey showed an outstanding and merciless performance, beating Algeria 7,5-0,5! The Turkish young girls who are coached by IM Elisabeth Paehtz demolished their opponents convincingly 4-0. In the men’s section Algeria was actually lucky to escape a total disaster, saving a bad position on board 1 against our current School World Champion Ali Marandi Cemil Can. Today both teams switch colours and opponents by Algeria’s number 1s moving down to second board, second to third board and so on…
