1st round victory against Grandmaster Zlatko Ilincic
The day before yesterday I had a busy day. I decided to move my work place from hime to an office, because our daughter Eszter started to speak and in the office I will be able to concentrate move when I am teaching or doing other things.
I brought there furnitures and a vacuum cleaner and did a quick cleaning.
Yesterday morning I had a special preparation for the first game of the tourney. My wife went for a spiritual lecture, so I spent my morning with my cute daughter Eszter.
We want to the forest where we visited a spring with a water-fall. The temperature was perfect. The fresh air was uplifting. We had a great time.
We were there so long I had no chance for lunch at home. Mira our babysitter arrived at 1:00 pm to take care of Eszter. created 3 sandwiches for myself and drove to the tournament hall in the Berlin hotel in Budapest.
I had around 10 minutes before the start. I had a nice little chat with Zoltan Nemeth, an international master who also a chess coach and who runs Sakkvilag the hungarian chess magazine. We talked about how to teach effectivly. He had an interesting idea. He said our brain has different parts for study in 2 dimension and in 3 dimension. He suggested for studdents to use a real chess board also when we study online. I think it can slow down the process a bit, but may have benefits.

One of his game against the famous Grandmaster Gligoric:
In our game I got a comfortable position out of the opening. I played the Fianchetto variation against the king's indian defense and I was able to play the c4-c5 push to change the pawn structure to my advantage.
I increased gradually my advantage move by move and until I was able to break the position with e4-e5 to open it for my better placed pieces.
I analysed the game deeply and share it with you:
