The dust settles on the battlefield

Lichess TeamChess

Congratulations to Crestbook Chess Club and GM Sergey Shipov on their victory!

A hush fell as the clock ticked down its final seconds, to the end of the inaugural Lichess Streamer Team Battle, which team would win... well by that point it was quite firmly decided! Congratulations to Crestbook Chess Club led by GM Sergey Shipov on their impressive performance and victory. It's not all about the winners though, 9 teams participated with over 5,400 players playing 35,190 games and 2,445,197 moves. Thanks to all the streamers leading their teams onto the battlefield, and to all the players! We've had great feedback on the event already and hope to organise another in the future, which teams will be included? Only time will tell, but for now let's congratulate the teams participating in this event:
