New Chess Super Power

The World Team Championship has ended on November 11th. In a dramatic last round Russia took the title after winning 3.5-0.5 against China, who were leading the tournament from its start.

GM Alex Finkel was broadcasting and commenting this event for WorldChessNetwork. After the tensions have dropped, he wrote a nice summary.
What a tournament it was! It had it all: top class chess games, a lot of tension and drama, underdog leading the field from the very beginning, head to head clash for the title in the last round, when the very last game of the championship was to decide a winner...
