Euro Clubs 7: Bronze Horseman snatch gold

Peter Svidler’s Bronze Horseman are the 2018 European Club Cup Champions after beating Valerenga 4:2 in the final round. Peter had more reason for self-deprecation than usual, but he did hold Magnus Carlsen to a draw. The World Champion will still be no.1 going into the match against Fabiano Caruana, but his team were one of three unfortunate to miss out on medals. AVE Novy Bor (Wojtaszek) took silver and Molodezhka (Potkin) bronze. The women’s event was won by Cercle d'Echecs de Monte-Carlo, with Anna Muzychuk starring on top board.
