Lower Bavarian Team Cup 2020: Chess Club Rottal-Inn reaches the semi-final
The nominally clearly inferior Deggendorfer delivered a tough fight to the defending champion and drew on boards 1 and 2. After four and a half hours of play and victories by Klaus Schwarzmeier and Andreas Nöhbauer, the Rottal chess players finally broke the resistance.
In the semi-finals on May 3, the SC Rottal-Inn faces the second team of SC Ortenburg at home.
The individual results (in the board order, SC Rottal-Inn named first): Josef Ager - Michael Bacholke draw, Patrick Bensch - Simon Staudinger draw, Klaus Schwarzmeier - Helmut Ertl 1:0, Andreas Nöhbauer - Alexander Lenhard 1:0.
