The 18th European Team Championships both Open and for Women took place in the resort of Porto Carras on the Sithonia, Halkidiki peninsula in crisis torn Greece Thursday 3rd - Friday 11th November 2011. There was a star filled lineup with Aronian, Karjakin, Topalov, Ivanchuk, Svidler, Morozevich, Giri, Adams, Short to mention just a few. After their recent failure in the World Teams Russia had a very strong team which was under great pressure to win and again they failed even to gain a medal. The event saw many surprises with 2nd seeds Ukraine finishing 15th, top seeds Russia 5th. In the end 10th seeds Germany showed their metal in match play by beating Armenia in the final round to take gold. Azerbaijan who had the title in their hands before losing to Germany in Round 8 finished 2nd and Hungary who seemed out of medal contention throughout beat Bulgaria 4-0, the only score that would do, to edge out Armenia on tie-break for Bronze. A truly amazing set of results but it is hard to argue that Germany didn't deserve their victory in the end having played most of the top teams but Russia who simply were never in contention in the 2nd half of the event.

Germany triumph in European Teams after beating Armenia (9)

The European Team Championships can never have been as dramatic as they were in Porto Carras in 2011. Various teams looked like they might win it, Azerbaijan, Armenia and Bulgaria all led at one point or another. It was however the unfancied 10th seeds Germany that held their nerve to win their 7th match dispatching Armenia 2.5-1.5 for a fantastic result. Azerbaijan finished second after beating Romania. Hungary provided the final shock coming from nowhere to take bronze by beating Bulgaria 4-0. After a couple of hours play it didn't look like they would win any games but then things went their way in an astonishing turn around. This left Armenia in fourth, any normal win by Hungary would have given Armenia the bronze. Russia finished 5th in another disappointing performance but maybe the seeds of better to come were seen in the later rounds. The official coverage was by ChessDom who were very happy with the interest in the event displayed by visits to the official website.
