The Israel team championship has concluded in Ramat Aviv, North Tel-Aviv on Friday, June 10th. After a collapse in the 10th round( 1.5-5.5 loss to Beer-Sheva A) my team from Ashdod didn't have real chances to fight for the first place. Nevertheless we managed to beat the third placed team Kfar Saba 6-1 in the eleventh round, while Beer-Sheva A beat a relatively weak team from Petakh Tikva 5.5-1.5 and took first, three points ahead of us.
The top three teams are:

It has been a while since I last posted a study. So I decided to call it "study" instead of "weekly study" as it's not published weekly. Enjoy the study of my countryman Yochanan Afek, one of the best modern composers:
