Austria’s late control sealed the board top

While halfway around the world, Rony Mordvinov gained nearly half the total points of the July Red Wednesday game in a last-season unfulfilled promise to rival Cori Neslund’s Germany.  

Both powers grew relatively consistently throughout the game, with Neslund’s Germany slightly, but consistently outpacing JJ Raymond’s England.  Running to the end, rumors swirled around the board that an Austro-German alliance sealed up a shared board top.  However, rumored support for the German’s potential 12th center failed to materialize in the game’s last turn leaving Mordvinov’s Austria as the sole board topper.
