To my surprise, already in the 2nd round I was paired against a grandmaster! Deepan Chakkravarthy (2496) was the second seed in this tournament, the game was broadcasted live, so there was a lot of pressure. Unfortunately, I did not do very well in the opening and was more or less lost by move 19. However, then things slowly started to turn around...

I was really happy to escape with a draw, especially after starting the game so poorly and playing the second half of the game on increment!
