OSG Baden-Baden Wins Fourth Consecutive Title in Bundesliga

Final rounds played on 28th and 29th March

The final two rounds of the Schachbundesliga took place on 28th and 29th March 2009 in four cities across Germany. OSG Baden-Baden, who played on their home turf, dispatched both Solingen and Wattenscheid by 6-2 to lay hands at the fourth consecutive title in the German team championship. World Champion Viswanathan Anand entered the team for the first time in this season and won both of his games to add spice to the club’s success.

Werder Bremen seized the second place after the dramatic last round match against Hamburger SK. Heroes of the day are Michael Roiz with a swift victory against the veteran Lubomir Ftacnik (replay bellow) and Luke McShane who beat Jan Gustafsson in a 124-moves long game! Only one point behind Werder are TV Tegernsee and SC Eppingen.
