Seven rounds have already passed and we have a free day tomorrow.

The tournament is very tough- as I expected. I've got 6p/7- a nice score, though the real fight is still to come. The distance is very long- 13 rounds- anything can happen. I am happy with my games so far and I hope to keep playing decent chess.

 I am really impressed by the play of the Chinese GM Yu Yangyi (2662),who has 6,5p/7- he shows a very high level of preparation and amazing chess skills. I wonder if anyone will be able to stop him- I guess that the Chinese Wall is kind of unbreakable

You can find the games,comments, photos and videos from the tournament on the official site of the event.

Will keep you posted!

Three rounds have already passed in the World Junior Chess Championship, which is taking place in Kocaeli,Turkey.

The tournament is organized really nice, despite changing the place of venue in the last moment (it had to be held in Hatay first, but because of the danger of a chemical attack it was moved). We stay and play in a real 5 star hotel where one can't find anything to complain about.

I've got 2,5p/3 so far, making a draw against Abdumalik Zhansaya (2277) - a very young player from Kazakhstan. It was a very interesting game which ended with a perpetual. You can check it here.
