Arthur reports from Bornholm!
- Written by Arthur Kogan
I just finished a tournament in the Bornholm Danish Island ...a nice island. Conditions could be improved,but the organisers did their best and we hope for better next year
I didn't have a good tournament,mainly because losing two winning positions vs GM's Tiviakov (Euro champion,I overplayed him in original creative olala play,but lost my mind,at least with 'good exuse' of playing a simul in the morning!) and vs Golod (I managed to miscalculate and make a record of losing a winning pawn endgame in a sudden time trouble when from 4.30 minute I saw just less than 20 seconds on the clock and got panic!) Is maybe even more incredible to mention that I could draw this two games even after blundering if I wanted, but 'decided' to risk and force too much to finally lose in a 'good olala samurai ' !
OK,maybe just sleeping better (and not on the board!!!) will solve this problems in the future, at least I hope so!:)
Still I managed to recover a bit after a good finish: Apply
Here are the final results:
I 'only' shared third ,but mainly had a nice vacation with my family :-))
Action in Bornholm, from the Local TV chanel! Look the link down:
All the best!
P.S By the way, I scored 9 out of 10! with black in my last 2 tournaments! ....so imagine how bad was my white colour with only 50 %.Even I lost points only to GM's still it hurts!
