Unfortunately Guy left the tournament after 2 games.
The struggle was so fascinating that we forgot to photograph...
Andrey refused to fly to Prague. For this reason, the Israel team at the Prague World Championships looks like this:
Ilya Shifman, Michael Shifman, Leonid Shifman, Danielle Yosifovich, Shahar Laufer. It is the first time a national team includes three youth players!
