Lineup for Second Match Announced !

The Lineups for the Second Match have been announced ! This was a match that we immediately spotted when the schedule was released as it was against the Defending Champions, the Dallas Destiny. This team, similar to us, has a very balanced roster almost every round and, as was shown last year, can compete with any team. This will be a competitive match! Okay on to the match ups!

The names listed to the left have White for the game while the names in bold are Scorpion players.

Dallas Destiny vs Arizona Scorpions

Board 1
IM Drasko Boskovic (2507) --- IM Levon Altounian (2535)

Board 2
FM Danny Rensch (2411) --- IM John Bartholomew (2488)

Board 3
FM Igor Schneider (2397) --- FM Robby Adamson (2377)

Board 4
NM Warren Harper (2351) --- NM Bayaraa Zorigt (2217)

All the ratings are current and are not the ratings being used for the league. As you can see this will be a very tight match. As I have said from the beginning it will all come down to who plays well and who doesn't. I have my own feelings about the match but I will leave the predictions to others. Come cheer our team on at the Eastside Chess Club at the Jewish Community Center in Tucson!

I am freaking out.

I will visit after my exercise class (oh, the humanity) ends at 8 pm down at Pantano & Bwy.
