The tournament in Montreal came after a long period without any chess practice for me. I was busy with the lessons and did not have any time for self-improvement. Unfortunately this became apparent in Canada. The first two games that I played were just horrible, I did not even know what to do with my pieces.
Then some wins came and at the seventh round I moved to board two for an encounter against one of the favourites, Wesley So:
Every battle has its scars, surpera it is the true victory!
thanks for sharing, Dejan! good to hear about your travels, the struggle between teaching and playing. and this was also a very interesting game for me. i hope you're in good shape at your next tournament :)
That was quite the trap in your variation 20 Bxa7 b6 21 Ra6 Rd8 22 Kf1. If White plays 22 Bxb6+ instead of 22 Kf1 (which I sure would have done ) then 22...Kb7 23 Bxd8 Kxa6 and the white bishop is still trapped...
Благодаря Ви, Г-н Кирилов за чудесната подкрепа!
Участието на такива форуми само по себе си е истинско предизвикателство ГМ Божков. Според мен, единствено дългото отсъствие от подобни събития е причината да не вземете някое от първите места. Благодаря Ви за чудесната статия.
