  pawn to QB4: Fine performance at the Olympiad, beating a GM rated 200 higher and leading his team to 4-0 v Tajikistan. Do we have any kibitzers from the Faroes? I'm watching 'cause I once went there. Entertaining win v Macau featured a queen sac, a successful king march and the "checkmate" of an opponent's queen as 3 of the 4 wins.
