The Italian Team Championship takes place April 29th-May 2nd 2010. In the main group (Master) 14 teams compete. The Pesaro team has GM Alexey Shirov. GMs Paco Vallejo, Maceja and Marin plays for Chieti. GMs Hubner, Gyimesi and Godena for Marostica. GM Leon Hoyo for Perugia. Fabiano Caruana leads the Padova team (winner of the title in 2009) with GM Kiril Georgiev.
Obiettivo Risarcimento from Padova won the Italian Team Championship with a round to go. Padova beat Marostica (a draw between Huebner and Caruana on top board) and Chieti beat Pesaro (Shirov beat Vallejo). So after 6 of 7 rounds Padova have 12 points, while Pesaro and Chieti have only 8. The last round will decide the second and third places.
The Italian Team Championship for Women was also settled with a round to go. Cheti (with WGMs Martha Fierro and Olga Zimina) took the title.
