KARLSRUHE INCREASES LEAD IN GERMAN TEAM LEAGUES

Tuesday April 20, 2010

Karlruhe increased their lead over runners-up Hamburg Hebsacker on April 15 in the penultimate round of the German Bundesliga (Team League).  Hebsacker won on only one board of four, just enough to keep their hopes alive for a miracle next month. They would not only need to crush the Frankfurt Dragons, but Karlsruhe – which has won the title all but one year – would have to lose badly to Berlin Igoist, for Hebsacker to win their second national title. Igoist defeated the Dragons to take over third place from Hamburg Pauli, which also lost 1-3, to Kieloben of Kiel. In tenth place, the aptly-named Berlin Blunders are beyond hope, while Red Star Nuremberg in ninth needs a win over Pauli to stay in the top league.
