I can't be particularly proud with my performance, indeed. But played quite many interesting games, and spoiled many promising positions. happy.png

A good win with a queen sacrifice:

...In the end of May, GM Bogdanovich's apartment in Odessa had been robbed, 30 000 USD stolen. sad.png The story was in local and all-Ukrainian media. But no results of the police investigation yet. The regional chess federation President Vadim Morokhovsky announced plans to organise charity business chess match in order to support Bogdanovich.
