Tromso Olympiad 2014 – Round 2
The match against the Dominican Republic went well, even though not entirely smoothly. I forgot my analysis and failed to punish his opening mistakes, in another Maroczy Bind like in round 1, and then started to take too many risks. At one moment I even sacrificed my queen!
|He should have taken the queen!|
But he took on e6 instead and I had an advantage but couldn’t find a way to increase it. I was posing problems until the very end and he succumbed eventually. We won 3-1 and the biggest surprise was when the pairings for tomorrow’s round came out.
To our great surprise, Mother Russia awaits us! We’re all excited and looking forward to tomorrow’s match!
