Welcome to this Blog post!

After the first four rounds...

Round 1
Round 2
Round 3

Round 4

... I was on 3/4. After the loss in Round 4 I got a somewhat weaker opponent again, setting a clear objective for Round 5: only a win really counts!

So in this game I got the black pieces vs. a spanish FM, O. Adel Lachaichi, rated 2213. While preparing, I decided to play 1...b6 vs. his 1 c4 English Opening in order to complicate matters.

Enjoy the coverage of this game!
