#949 CZE-USA Update

Since my last update, the Czech Republic has upped their its lead over the U.S. to 3 points, 21.5-18.5, and reduced their its magic number to 4.

We (Team USA) stand to lose on board 7 but are equal or better in all the other games, where +4-0=5 would tie the match. Ethan Civan is winning with White and I am beating Svítil, who hasn't moved since 12/30. IM Michael Brooks has 2 advantages (see here and here) and Wilbur Tseng has 2 edges.
