After 9 straight wins my team Malmö AS claimed the Swedish Championships. Excellent team with an excellent team spirit and with star players like Baadur Jobava, George Meier, Nils Grandelius & the legendary Ulf Andersson it was a pleasure to play. Big thanks to the sponsors Akropolis, Casa Mia and Mobile Labs. A big thank you also to the team manager Stefan Printz and his assistant Jonas Lindahl for a splendid job!
