Road to the Grandmaster title | June IM round 3 | Ilincic-Turzo | Slav Defense

Today I started with 100 easy puzzles and 3 hard puzzles. It was the 64th day of the 1 hour Calculation training for the Grandmaster title.

You can solve the puzzles with me in my stream at https://www.twitch.tv/attilaturzo and you can watch it on my youtube channel:

After the puzzles I analyzed the game which I played yesterday in the First Saturday international tournament. 

I played with Grandmaster Ilincic Zlatko.

In 2000, Zlatko Ilinčić won FR Yugoslavia Chess Championship. He was the winner of the First Saturday grandmasters chess tournament in Budapest: in July 2012 and in June 2018, and 2nd place in 2019.   "Wikipedia"

He played Nf3, e3, Bd3 against the Slav defense. Very solid setup.

I tried to counter-attack with c6-c5 in the middlegame, but after his a3-b4 moves 3 pair of pawns exchanged and many pieces. I accepted his draw offer in a symetrical position with only a few pieces left.

He is the top rated player in the tourney. I am happy with the result and how I played.
