Grandmaster Georg Meier and Germany just clinched the 18th European Chess Team Chess Championship by beating Armenia in the 9th and last round.  This is the first time that Germany wins the this tournament.  

Georg Meier a, TTU freshman, and a Knight Raider A-team member, played a vital role in securing the title for the German team.  It literally came down to his game against Movsesian were Georg had the black pieces.  Since the games on the remaining three boards were drawn it was up to Meier to decide the outcome of the match - and he won! Grandmaster and SPICE Director Susan Polgar describes Meier's and the German team's performance as nothing short of amazing.  The picture attached shows Meier playing his game against Movsesian with onlookers.  Georg is in the blue sweater.
