Magic Extremadura wins Spanish Team Championship

From September 30 to October 6 Hotel TRYP Melilla Puerto in Melilla hosted the highest division of the Spanish Team Championship (Campeonato de España por Equipos de Club de División de Honor). Eight teams with six boards in each (one woman) played in the round-robin format.

Despite two defeats along the way, Gros Xake Taldea came second with 10 points. The Ukraine-powered CAC Beniajan Duoschess, with GMs Vassily Ivanchuk and Ruslan Ponomariov in its line-up, rounds out top-3 with 9 points.
