Yesterday I palyed with the talented Hungarian 15 years old FIDE-master Alex Krstulovic.

I played the Chebanenko Slav. He got the pair of bishop in the beginning of the game, but I was able to get a slight edge, by the b5, b5 queenside advance.

I played natural moves which were not the best and missed an intermediate Be3 move to activate his bishops. He got an advantage which he could size with f3-f4 to open the f-file for the rook to attack the f7 pawn.

We went to a 2 bishop versus bishop and knight endgame, which could be big challenge, but he allowed me to go to an opposite colour bishop endgame with a pawn down, which was an easy draw.

In the opening he wanted to repeat moves just after 8 moves. I thought 10 minutes and decided to play on. Anyway I am playing in this tourney to practice, so I want to play out all the games!

Today I will play with a young Vietnamese player Nguyen Van Thanh.
