Oh what a perfect day, this is the View from my Window, as long as you don't look down
and if you do
So I started the Day in a good mood, made a Coffee, had a Shower and immediately got down to Business, well actually editing my Facebook friends list and Chatting. Granted, not very constructive. Better would have been to do some exploring and bring you some interesting Pictures of Gibraltar like a Monkey or two. It is amazing how much time you can spend "quickly checking your Mail"
Anyhow, at 3pm my Game started and again did not last very long but this time I as on the right side of the result. The opening Idea was shown to me by an Armenian GM Karen Movszeszian. My young opponent was taken by surprise and responded badly.
I spent the rest of the Afternoon watching Ivanchuk and Short weave their Magic. Vassily was in deep doodah against Kotronias but managed to survive long enough for Vassilios to Blunder. Nigel on the other hand played a controlled positional masterpiece against Joint leader, the very talented Nadezhda Kosintseva
