Chess Olympiad in Tromsö

I have not written anything in a while and it is partly because I have been playing a lot this summer and partly because I haven’t played as well as I hoped to do. The Swedish Championship was my worst tournament in some time, but on a positive note it wasn’t all that bad. I lost two games on time in equal positions because I forgot about the clock. Saying “these things happen” seems like a rather defeatist attitude to take to something so obviously silly and it is only because I believe I have come to a conclusion as to what caused it, that I feel I can treat it as water under the bridges.

The first round starts within a few hours and my team is playing Sri Lanka. You can follow the games here.

Here is a crazy Modern game I played earlier this summer:
