Chessexplained's Mallorca Tournament Round 6
May 26, 2014, 12:45 PM
Welcome to this Blog post!
After the first five rounds...
... I was on 4/5.
All and all that was an excellent start and got my hopes up to play for a GM norm. The tournament was strong enough to get the opposition needed, but you also need to score enough points :-)
My rough calculation showed that in the Round 6 game vs. Serbian GM Paunovic, rated 2480, I should try to win with white. To reach the necessary 2600 rating performance for a GM norm, I probably needed to score 3 out of 4 of the remaining games - so better start winning sooner than later...
Enjoy the coverage of this game!
