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.

Today will be a free day in the tourney, but because on Saturday there will be the Hungarin team championship game, I will play the saturday tourney game today.

I will play with International Master Zoltan Nemeth, the Publisher of the Hungarian Chessmagazine, Sakkvilág.
I plan to go for the win with the Catalan against him.
