    In order to avoid playing the opening theory, you need to study A LOT of opening theory.

    The weekend Hive chess continued today with the thematic tournament hosted by @schamangerbert

    Today's tournament was a closed Sicilian defence, another variation of the Sicilian which is very complicated unlike the regular open Sicilian lines. The tournament was played by 20players and was really fun.


    Congratulations to the winners

    It was a tough one today, as it looked very early that @jaki01 was going to run away with the 1st position after winning his first 7 games but after a draw to @stayoutoftherz who found a perpetual check in a fairly equal position, @eniolw was suddenly up in contention after also starting with a perfect run too. Both players were unbeaten in the tournament but @eniolw prowess with beserk button edged him over the former as he ended 1st place and @jaki01 had to settle for 2nd. @ burnoutsomehive ended 3rd place after a nice run too. Overall it was an interesting theme tournament.

    One thing to note is black had more wins than white today!


    My performance

    Just like yesterday, I feel satisfied with my performance, although there some unconvincing draws I should have converted but overall it was interesting and 5th position again is okay for me. I also have a game I enjoyed today too, this one is against my good friend @tungphong who I finally won in a nice ending.

    Check it out.
