Mahdi, it reflects good work on your part, especially if you're not cheating at all.That's a hard rating for someone with little experience to achieve. Good job.

FM Elliott Liu continues his great explanation of his quest to convert a material advantage in the famed "First Saturday" tournament series in Budapest. Using sly maneuvers and careful planning, he shows how improving the worst piece can often be the best plan. His exemplary game is still not quite in the bag, but Liu is inching closer by trading two of his opponent's three remaining pieces. Can his extra bishop tip the balance in his favor?
