At the beginning I would like to thank everyone for visiting my blog. Yesterday there were 76 views 🙂
Unfortunately I can’t write after each round because it’s not so easy to connect to the internet, anyway let’s concentrate on some chess.

In second round I beat very talented young player Volodymyr Vetoshko (13 years old, rated 2212). He surprised me in the opening, I must say it was very brave decision to play Leningrad Dutch against me since that’s one of my favourite openings and I play this regularly for couple of last years. I got an advantage but later there were some tactics and again mutual time trouble but finally I got him.

The third round was in the morning… and that turned out to be very bad for me. I played versus Moldavian International Master (and Woman International Master at the same time but not Woman GrandMaster, quite strange to me) Svetlana Petrenko (2209) and we played some line of the French Defence where I must have had good position but somehow I wasn’t in a best shape and got into the time trouble (again!) and just lost the game…

In the fourth game, just after today’s dinner I faced another woman – Woman Fide Master Golubeva Oksana from Russia (2133). I went 1.e4 and played some sideline, the way I played was very artificial but it worked well for me. And this time there was no time trouble on my side! Here’s the game:

Tomorrow I’m going to play Black against young Ukrainian guy – Mirzoev Emil (2138). He is doing pretty well in the tournament (3/4, 2 draws with IMs 2300+). The round is in the morning, I hope I’ll do better this time.
