With Round 3 the Olympiad warm-up was over! Stars such as Hikaru Nakamura and Women's World Champion Hou Yifan made their first appearances, while there were big-name casualties in the top matches - reigning champions Armenia lost to France while the USA fell to the Netherlands. In the official bulletin Grandmasters Jonathan Tisdall and Einar Gausel look at those matches, but also draw attention to some less obvious highlights, including a spectacular win for Iran's WGM Sarasadat Khademalsharieh that helped the Iranian women take a surprise early lead.

The bulletin also includes the traditional "Blunders, upsets and knockdowns" section, which is not available elsewhere.
