The 40th Chess Olympiad takes place in Istanbul, Turkey 27th August (Opening 28th R1) to 9th September 2012. Play starts 15:00 local time, 13:00 BST. Elo favourites Russia haven't won the title since 2002, defending champions Ukraine and Armenia are all close to full strength. World number 1 Magnus Carlsen will not be playing and rather shockingly the 2014 hosts Norway can't find the money to field an any way representative team. England with Adams, Jones and Short are about as strong as could be expected given that McShane is only a part time player. http://fantasychessteam.com/ is a prediction competition and Yorkshire Chess have a handy Olympiad Preview

40th Chess Olympiad Istanbul Round 11 2012 (11)

The 40th Chess Olympiad Istanbul Final Round 11 took place on Sunday 9th September 2012.

Armenia captured their third title in their last four attempts after defeating Hungary 2.5-1.5 in the final round thanks to a win from Sergei Movsesian. Their leader Levon Aronian also captured gold on board 1. The round 10 leaders China were defeated 3-1 by Ukraine where Vassily Ivanchuk destroyed Wang Hao on top board. Russia were level with Armenia on 19 points but had a worse tie-break even after beating Germany 3-1. Ukraine took bronze.

Gold Medal Board Prizes Bd1: Levon Aronian Bd2 David Navara Bd3 Shakhriyar Mamedyarov Bd4 Vlad Tkachiev Bd5 Dmitry Jakovenko.

In the women's Olympiad Russia destroyed Kazakhstan 4-0 in the final round and took the title on tie-break from China who only just struggled past Bulgaria 2.5-1.5. Russia did what China failed to do in Round 10, beat a Kazakhstan who did really well but were vastly outrated on every board.
