It might not be a coincidence that I stopped posting as our results worsened! After winning our first six matches we lost the next five. That left us almost out of the running -- we could have qualified with three blitzes or near blitzes in our last three matches. This was not totally unlikely, since on the final day we played the teams who ended up finishing 10, 11, and 12 in our bracket of 15 teams. In fact we finished with two ties and a loss, so in 7th place and well out of qualifying position. Congrats to Sweden, the eventual winners, and to everyone who did well.
