Unfortunately I lost the 8th round to IM P.Simacek. My opening was kind of crap… Later I had to defend just worse position and it turned out to be not so easy especially I got into time trouble. It’s not good to play such game with White pieces…

But today I recovered quickly winning against International Master Viktor Volodin and now I’m waiting for results of other players. The final results will be maybe in two hours.

To summarize my play: it wasn’t my best tournament, I lost few ELO points. My opening preparation was also poor quality, this time I preferred relax over long chess preparation before the game. But all in all I can’t grumble, taking into account I was so busy with my studies recently my play wasn’t that horrible as sometimes is 😉

My next tournament will be probably during summer holidays…
