#733 UKR-USA Info

In the Ukraine-USA correspondence match, I am playing on board 32 against Vladyslav Tiba (2038 FIDE).

The U.S. lineup includes John Ballow, who I defeated 2-0 in a 1991 postal event, Fred Sharpell of the West Orange Chess Club and NM Peter Radomskyj. They are playing on boards 2, 10 and 23, respectively although the latter is, by far, the strongest otb player.

The public can view the games but transmission is delayed by 5 moves.
