2012 Jan: Metro Chess Club LA: Hovanes Salvaryan vs Srikanth Bangalore

Jan 31, 2012, 5:32 AM |

This was the first round of the tournament, and I was playing a very talented youngster Hovanes Salvaryan. He opened 1.e4 and we entered Scandinavian Defense. He outplayed me in the opening and in the middle game. But made a blunder in the endgame and another one on the following move, when he went into a pawn endgame rather than stay in the Bishop endgame.

A very satisfying win.
