World Team Rd7: The mad battle for bronze 4/27/2015 – The clash of the titans, to abuse an oft-used movie reference, took place in round seven, with leaders Ukraine and China facing off against each other on the top boards. It was a dogged fight with blood spilled on both ends, but ended in a draw. With Cuba and Israel losing once more, seven teams, including tailenders USA and Russia, now have chances at bronze.

Quotes Of The Day (from Kelly Atkins)

"My God given talent is my ability to stick with training longer than anybody else." Herschel Walker

"Some openings walk the line between leading to easy equality, and wiping the opponent off the board. They have an element of risk. A lot of the gambits fall into this category. If you know how to meet them, then you get to equalize easily. If not, bend over baby, here comes the A-train." Kelly Atkins
