It was a smaller tournament I played in Sweden that helps determine the class you end up in when playing the swedish championships in the summer. I almost made it up to class II but only almost (would have needed half a point) so I'm going to compete in class III (approx class C players) this year.
A really GREAT combination with deep calculations.

Thank you very much for some nice games. What tournament have you played by the way?
