Nov-21-21  nok: Tense final between Azeris and France
.
Nov-21-21  thebully99: The future belongs to Firouzja, it's just a matter of when he'll take it. Only the worst possible luck will prevent him from becoming world champion in this decade.

And of course while Firouzja went on a dominating streak, Timid Teimour drew all of his games......

Nov-21-21  ndg2: Mamedyarov blundered in a rook endgame. Alireza now with 2803 ELO and #2 spot in FIDE next month. He also played a tremendous tournament of course with 8 out 9 points.

  Chess for life: Looking at https://chess-results.com/tnr583987... Looks like France wins because the first tie-break is 164.5 vs 154.0, looks like some kind of sum of board points.

  Chess for life: This has the details: https://www.euroteamchess2021.eu/wp...

First tie-break is: "By the sum of Sonneborn–Berger points, which is calculated as follows: match points of each match, excluding the opponent who scored the lowest number of match points, multiplied by the number of board points scored against each opponent respectively. The highest number wins; in case of two or more opponents with the same total of match points the lowest results of multiplication shall be excluded"

Nov-21-21  macer75: <fabelhaft: It’s amazing how Radjabov manages to line up game after game where it never seems anything else than certain draw on every move. But it works for Azerbaijan, first place with two matches left.>

If Radjabov had been paired against Firouzja and Mamedyarov against MVL, Azerbaijan might have tied France and won the tournament.

Nov-21-21  macer75: <thebully99: The future belongs to Firouzja, it's just a matter of when he'll take it. Only the worst possible luck will prevent him from becoming world champion in this decade.>

That, or Carlsen continuing to play like Carlsen.

Nov-21-21  fabelhaft: Ukraine won some strong team events in the past, but never the European Team Championship, and they did have players like Ivanchuk, Ponomariov and Karjakin. Now they won it with Korobov as the strongest player, and he is 2684.
Nov-21-21  fabelhaft: Strong finish by France, beating the top ranked teams Russia and Azerbaijan, and it was almost enough for first place. Still four of the five French players underperformed and lost rating points. The fifth did fairly well though.

Speaking of Karjakin, why didn't he play?

Nov-22-21  shakh.i.shekh: Following up on a previous comment, Ukraine won 2 GOLD medals at Chess Olympiads in 2004 and 2010. Unfortunately, Ukraine no longer has any players that are invited to top tier tournaments. It has no 2700 rated player. Perhaps Kirill Shevchenko now 19 can rise to chess elite. He has the right last name to represent Ukraine.

As opposed to who?

Nov-22-21  fabelhaft: <Speaking of Karjakin, why didn't he play?>

Probably busy preparing with Nepo.

Nov-22-21  metatron2: That's why Tari and Hammer didn't play for Norway?
Nov-22-21  macer75: <metatron2: That's why Tari and Hammer didn't play for Norway?>

Damn, Tari and Hammer didn't play for Norway either? Who else do they have? Did they just get 5 guys off the street?

Nov-22-21  Albertan: Ukraine take gold:

Yup, but it seems like fabelhaft doesn't want to disclose details about Carlsen's team for the match, so I don't know whether it is because they are in that team (or at least one of them).

Nov-23-21  fabelhaft: <it seems like fabelhaft doesn't want to disclose details about Carlsen's team for the match>

It was supposed to be a secret, but it is Tari, Giri, Hari and Garry.

Nov-23-21  metatron2: <it is Tari, Giri, Hari and Garry>

:) For a moment there I was wondering whether you are serious or not, but with Giri on the list it just couldn't be.

I still think that you know the team, or at the very least got rumors about most of Carlsen's seconds..
