The sun came out yesterday and so did the flies - we are right next to the Oder river. But they weren't the only things to bite us. The U20s had a tough day with three defeats, two of them with big swings out in the last few boards. Under the new VP scoring scale, these seem to be even more costly than before. Fortunately there were plenty of shock results flying around so despite dropping down the table, we are still in touch. A momentum shift is required. Israel first up today would be an excellent place to start.
