It was a crazy day with unstable Internet service and change of procedures. They did not allow anyone but the players to enter the playing hall until after the rounds started. The new zero tolerance rule by FIDE is being enforced. I am being cautious and get there 15 minutes before the round start time.
I played Dachi Donghvani from Georgia in round 2. It was nice game and I was able to trap his queen making it a short game. Below is the only picture we could get.
Round 3, I will be black against an Iranian player.
