My first FIDE rated blitz tournament at Gogolevskiy boulevard 14, the center of chess world...

This was my first fide-rated tournament... and the first serious tournament played offline. Nevertheless I scored twice less than I should have... 2.5 out of 9, should have scored at least 4... but still would be in minus... The tournament was quite strong, average rating of 64 rated attendants was 2 093 ELO, plus 14 players without fide rating, including myself ... it was 15mins + 10 sec, FIsher time...

The first day I was getting used to tournament and managed to get very good positions in 3 games out of 4, but got only one draw... all this was due to lack of concentration and sometime rushing moves...

The tournament was quite strong named after great German chess champion, Adolf Anderssen with a lot of high-rated players.

During the second day we had to play remaining 5 games and I decided to take a script of each move for further analysis. Below are games from 6 to 9 th rounds where I managed to take a scripts however it was very difficult due to time pressure...

This was a game against a woman on round 6, my first victory on the tournament!

 

This game was against quite young guy and my second victory on the tournament! 

This game was against very young girl, less than 13 definitely... but whe was rated more than 1930 as she said...

This was the last game of the tournament... after the 8th round where I lost afte Na4... I was hardly playing...

Overall I took 2.5 points out of 9... to be honest I should have taken 4 or 4.5... being around 0 for this tournament, but I think it is good for the start. Anyway, I'd be happy that I could hold all games until the 30+ move without huge blunders and was rated as a result of this tournament with 1 605 rating... but anyway will come back and take a revenge, for sure... because the final tournament list is giving a great room of improvement for me (see the list below where my lost games are marked Yellow, my won games are marked Green and my draws are marked Grey)...
