It's been a while since I posted a game, so here's my first try at a local tournament in OPAX, Cholargos. I felt that my opponent just waited for me to make a mistake instead of coming up with a solid plan. As I didn't made any big ones, I was having a pretty good position. Well...until I didn't.

This was a great experience which taught me to not underestimate my remaining time. 6 minutes plus 30 seconds increment on each move is plenty of time to calculate a move like 25... e4! However, I got nervous and played a hasty move, which resulted in loosing the game.

 

Next rounds coming soon!
