In round 3 I played with International Grandmaster Gábor Nagy from Hungary.

He surprised me in the opening with Qc2 in the chebanenko Slav.

I wanted to play solid, so I gave up the pair of bishops and space.

He could have a winning attack against my king, but played slowly and I was able to build up a counter-attack against his d4 pawn. He offered me a draw, but I realized, He allowed me to exchange pieces and win the d4 pawn. I captured the pawn and won with an attack against his king.
