I am the 7th according to the ratings.

We have 2 very strong players rated above 2500. Many talented juniors.

I would like to be in the best 3 players at the end of the tourney.

In the first round I played with FIDE-master Áron Palásti, a strong junior player.

I played the classical sicilian and he was not familiar with the plans and allowed me to build up an attack and win material. I got a rook for a knight and pawn and was able to win in a long endgame. I liked how I sacrificed back the material to win the game:
