Complete Standings
Somehow I managed to win this 9-rd blitz tournament with 7.5/9. The event was organized by my club Rakosligeti and held at out club venue. I managed to make some new chess friends and practice my very basic Hungarian language skills.

The entry fee was a microscopic 300HUF(1.39CAN/1.31USD/1EUR) but no cash prizes. About 25 players showed up for a Saturday of fun.

For this I received a trophy and medal and a 1500HUF credit at the Erdelyi book stand where I bought a small book on tactics and donated it to the club library.
