4 days, 4 rounds and 4 points

Round 4 was a good game. It was easily the longest game I played so far. Carlos had only about 6 minutes left. He resigned after blundering a rook in a worse position (down 2 pawns). Last time I played him was two years ago at North American Youth 2007, Aguacalientes, Mexico.

Round 5 was an interesting game. I secured an advantage in the middle game by pinning his bishop and eventually won a pawn then an exchange. It was easy conversion after that.


Here are a couple more pictures from Round 4 and 5:

I love that photo of the players smiling and shaking hands before round 5. Gens summa uns.

Best of luck in round 6! Two more games on Thursday and the final round on Friday.
