Japfa International Masters Tournament Round 8

Today was definitely the low point of the tournament for far! I cannot explain exactly what happened because I did exactly what I told myself not to do. Instead of playing good central chess I put a horse on a3, then moved it to b5 and followed with 13.Qa4 after which my position is already difficult. I missed 14....Nc4 completely which by the way is not the only way to win a pawn. It only got worse as I missed everything eventually missing 24...c4.

Some days one just sees nothing. The only bright side is that the game was short so I didn't have to input too many moves. Luckily there are only two rounds a day 😩

Tomorrow is another day and I promise, no "creativity".
