Round 5

Round 6

Round 7

... I was on 5/7. 

In Round 8 I got the white pieces again, playing a young spanish IM, Santiago de la Torra (Elo 2454). My opponent still had vague hopes for a GM norm, so he was inclined to win the game. I didn't manage to get anything out of the opening, but still had a very solid position.

 This video also covers Round 9, where I played a very quick draw vs. Portugese GM Luis Galego, both players being very tired after a shortr night's sleep and without any prospects to win a prize.

So at the end I finished with 6/9, a very good score considering the opposition.
