Monkey Names!

MonkeyClub Wins Title in U1400 and U1600!

It is time to celebrate! Two T41 teamleague finals were decided today and we are able to score two titles in the process. Both U1400 (2-2) and U1600 (3-0) have won their sections! Congratulations to all players of both teams. You guys really earned it. :-)

With two titles and one semi final it is already a great season for us so far. However, there is still one semi final with a MonkeyClub team happening right now. The U1800 Chimpions are trying to battle their way into the finals.

We will post a retrospection of this teamleague season next week and also include the most exciting games played in this tournament.

MonkeyClub1400 Enters the Finals!

Our U1400 team managed to enter the finals with a great victory against the team PawnMowers and taking revenge for their loss in round 1 in this season.

Patgrisly finally won his first game this season versus Oldflyer and InvisibleDog once again proved to be the driving force behind this season's success. Then onomatopeia managed to magically survive countless checkmate threads in a game where he was an exchange down and fought hard to eventually turn and win the game, making the current score 3:0!

The final match of this semi final will be played today at 09:30 and Cinnamonbandit has the chance to score the 4:0.

Congratulations to the whole team!
