Round 5: Powerful Play against the Petroff
My opponent said, the Petroff was a suprise for him.
He used a lot of time in the opening to find moves to exchange pieces and go for an equal position.
I refused the queen exchange and eveloped my pieces, but my normal looking castle was a mistake in a quite position. I needed to sacrifice an exchange to get a sharp position with some compensation.
I did not find that line, so I just went to a positionally worse position with a double pawn and he had the pair of bishops.
The position was still ok, when I blundered a relativelly simple tactics with an intermediate move to open the file for his rook.
Then it was over, a quick victory for the youngest player of the tourney.
