Rusty in Montreal

The tournament in Montreal came after a long period without any chess practice for me. I was busy with the lessons and did not have any time for self-improvement. Unfortunately this became apparent in Canada. The first two games that I played were just horrible, I did not even know what to do with my pieces.

Then some wins came and at the seventh round I moved to board two for an encounter against one of the favourites, Wesley So:

    That was quite the trap in your variation 20 Bxa7 b6 21 Ra6 Rd8 22 Kf1.  If White plays 22 Bxb6+ instead of 22 Kf1 (which I sure would have done Embarassed)  then 22...Kb7 23 Bxd8 Kxa6 and the white bishop is still trapped...

    Участието на такива форуми само по себе си е истинско предизвикателство ГМ Божков. Според мен, единствено дългото отсъствие от подобни събития е причината да не вземете някое от първите места. Благодаря Ви за чудесната статия.
