18 games in 10 days

After a shared first place in Svein’s Memorial, in Oslo, I continued to the Swedish city of Växjö, in order to play in the Visma Chess Tournament GM-group (both tournaments I will come back to later). My ambition was to play some good games and not worry too much about the final result. After a good start with 2/3 I woke up on the third day and felt great. I put on my favourite shirt, had breakfast and got off to a good start in my game. Or, rather, so I thought. In reality things were far from clear and my unrealistic attitude eventually caught up with me.

Next time I wear that shirt, I will do things differently.
