Poland fought back in style on June 5 though, finally stopping the Inseis 13-7.  “Your team will be the next one we beat,” said Dinerchtein, known as Breakfast on KGS, when he challenged the U.S. recently.  “Not so fast Breakfast,” responded the AGF’s youth go website Tiger’s Mouth, who put together a 20-member dream team to challenge the Inseis.  Team Tigersmouth has star youth players Curtis Tang 8d and Gansheng Shi 8d,  plus Calvin Sun 7d, ten more dan level kids, and 7 kyu level players.  The stage is set for Sunday June 13th in the AGA Tournaments room on KGS, at 10 am west coast time, observers are welcome.  Pairings will be available shortly before the match  here, Tigersmouth team info is available here.
