Euro Clubs 2-3: Team Magnus impress

Six teams still have a perfect score after three rounds of the European Club Cup, but it’s 9th placed Valerenga Sjakklubb who have been the team to watch so far. In Round 2 Magnus Carlsen worked his magic in a dry position to beat Vladimir Potkin on the way to a surprisingly easy 4.5:1.5 win over a strong Russian team. Then in Round 3 Olympiad stars Nils Grandelius and David Howell gave the Norwegian side a 3:3 draw against 2nd seeds AVE Novy Bor, with Howell taking down Harikrishna in 85 moves despite playing many of his moves with seconds to spare.
