Team Garuda

Posted by GilaChess

The Garuda is the perfect team name for the current team that looks most impressive after Round 3 as they do not have the strongest players of the tournaments yet still manage to stay on top with the best of them.

According to Wikipedia:
The Garuda is a large mythical bird, bird-like creature, or humanoid bird that appears in both Hindu and Buddhist mythology. Garuda is the mount (vahana) of the Lord Vishnu. Garuda is the Hindu name for the constellation Aquila. The brahminy kite and phoenix are considered to be the contemporary representations of Garuda.[1] Indonesia adopts a more stylistic approach to the Garuda's depiction as its national symbol, where it depicts a Javanese eagle (being much larger than a kite)

Still there are 6 more rounds to go and 9 other teams that are equal to Garuda in match points.

Round 4 witnesses the clash of these unbeaten teams:-
