Eric Hansen to play for a German team

If you still do not follow GM Hansen on Facebook, you might have missed one of his recent annoucements.


An article announcing my signing to a team in Germany for the 2013-2014 season. I will be competing in the top division of the Bundesliga, the strongest chess league in the world. I'm super excited for the opportunity!


For those who might wonder, this doesn't mean he will be leaving Canada or switching federations. European leagues very often invite players from other countries to compete for them.

Here's also an interesting position (from the Edmonton International) he shared recently. GM Hansen had White and had great winning prospects. However, he played c3?. How did Black make him resign?
