I would like to begin with a tournament that I have recently played in Vladivostok, Russia (one of the stages of the Russian Cup in classical chess - Overall, my play there was so-so. However, when I was going through some of the game fragments during the flight, strangely enough, I came to a conclusion that there are some things worth boasting about. For example, I have played a rather high-quality game with IM Semeniuk. It will be the subject of todays article. By the way, one (especially me) rarely cant beat a 2400+ by playing nearly exclusively first and second-line (in unforced situations) moves according to the engine. Maybe
the Soviet chess school actually counts for something

A nice game, although not rich in content after all, starting from a certain point all the moves were forced. Nevertheless, the tactical fight looks rather refreshing to me. Also, imho, I performed well after the opening. Overall, this is definitely the best game I have played in the tournament in terms of quality.
