Some excellent news:

We have just finished our last game in this Season 2 (new win of Athos at the 3rd board): Pansier 1 Masek. [click]

Athos scores hereby a second Senior International Master (SIM) norm and obtains the title. [click]

This utimate victory confirms our clear first place in this group 2 with 26,5 points out of 40 (best score throughout all groups) and closes off this Season 2 in beautiful style for our team. [click]

Therefore, you will see back Les Mousquetaires du Roi in League A the next season (Season 3), which should start in September 2007.

Note: The Champions League commissioners have renamed in "Season 2" the current season (2004-2007) which was initially named "First season" (this is how it is currently named on this site). The "first season" or "Season 1" now corresponds to the preliminary round (2002-2004) and the next season will be "Season 3" (2007-????). An update of this naming of the Seasons should follow on this site soon.


Happy New Year 2007!

This new year is starting very well for our team because we are confident to end up at first place of our group and hence to go up in League A for the next season.
