Over in Siberia: Board 3 for the Faroe Islands is kinda strong!

Yury Shulman won this game very smoothly, as the US got off to a 4-0 start.  Chicago's other home team, Turkmenistan, rolled 4-0, with Mesgen Amanov sitting out round 1.

But the Faroe Islands (population less than 50,000, or less than 1/140th the population of metropolitan Chicago) fields a very respectable team!
