It will be very hard for any team to prevent Italy from winning the competition. Today they won fifth consecutive match and they are leading the 50+ section very comfortably. On the second board Russian Women defeated Belgium and made a big step towards a silver medal. Below two leaders there are several teams (including both Polish squads) that are fighting for the third spot.
We can see a similar situation in the section 65+. Favourites from Russia have won all matches so far and they are 2 points ahead of Germany, who crashed 4-0 Denmark SK-2012. In spite of losing to Russia, the Swedish team occupies the third place. However there is only one match point differential between them and the Finland Royal Musketters who are tenth. Today I am analysing maybe not the best but for sure the most appealing game. In very unclear position both sides were close to checkmate each other.
