Following an exciting struggle, Jarek Moc from Poland, playing USSR, defeated Dutchman Daniël Hogetoorn in turn 8. Jarek kept the pressure high continuously by dominating Asia and Middle East, while Daniël tried to score his points in Europe and Africa. In the Americas several fights took place, but a real winner couldn’t be determined. In turn 8 things were decided by a risky play of Daniël, followed by a very successful Terrorism play by Jarek. He stole the only way out for Daniël to get rid of the Lone Gunman. Kennedy was shot and Nuclear War broke out. Jarek, congratulations and good luck with your next challenger. Daniël will fall back to somewhere around place 55 and will start trying to climb onto the Ladder again!
