Here I am, in Denizli, playing in the Turkish 2nd League. I was so eager to play chess again after one month break! It's really nice to feel the taste of wins

Our team- "Bursa Buyuksehir Belediyespor Kulubu" is the 2nd favorite in the starting list. The first 3 teams are going to qualify for the next year's 1st League- so this is our goal.
Here are some photos:

This is the secret of a perfect score ;)

Our team ;)

Six rounds have passed. We won 5 matches and lost one. As about me- I've got 5,5p/6, winning all my games against lower rated opponents and making a draw against a higher rated one. Here's the game in which I made a draw, vs Sopiko Guramishvili (2426).

It it my first tournament when I play with my rating being over 2400. It is quite difficult to raise your Elo when the k=10...
