Paris 2010 French Blitz Championship
As you all know last night I gave a chess simul in Oslo, Norway. Well I could not miss playing in a blitz tournament, so I got up at 4 AM, took the first flight Oslo - Paris, and played today in the French Blitz Championship!
I will write a little more later, but let me tell you my result was not so bad, 9.5 out of 13, and I ended up in 8th place, with a performance of 2598. I finished with a very nice win against GM Vaisser, here it is:
I hope you liked the moves 26. Nxe6 and 27. Bb6 :-) At the end when Anatoly resigned I can play 29.Bxg6 and due to the threat of mate on f7, Black has to play Bd5 or Be8 but that loses his Queen on b6.
