Dutch Team Cup

hollandOn Thursday, May 10, the Dutch Team Cup finals will take place in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.

Four teams have qualified for the semi finals: LSG, Voerendaal, MuConsult Apeldoorn and Lonneker. The winners of the semi finals will play the finals. The losers of the semi finals will play for the 3rd-4th place.

Each team consist of 4 players. In case of a 2-2, the teams will play a blitz match. In case of a 2-2 in the blitz, the 4th board of the classical will be eliminated and the score on the top-3 board will decide the winner. If that was a draw, the 3rd board will be eliminated… up until the 2nd board of the blitz. Did all 8 games end in a draw, then drawing of lots decides.
