Torokves Open 2013 Rd9

Results and Final Standings
Orfei, Rolando took clear first with 7.5/9. I shared second with Kalmar, Karoly with 6.5/9 but we both played only 8 games.
I managed to win an equal RR-RR ending against Sulcz in the dramatic last round.

The Torokves Open and RR is held twice a year and is one of the hidden little gems of Hungarian chess. I paid a very modest 4800HUF(16EUR.22/USD) for 9 rounds of FIDE rated chess (90mins+30sec increments). The tournament had their foreign players including myself, all Budapest residents.

As usual, the Open was very casual and friendly as I was able to participate in some of the analysis now that my Hungarian skills have improved a bit.

From my round 9 game Sulcz,I-Yip

38.Rgd3

I continued with 38..Rh1 and ground out a win after some inaccurate play by white and a bit of luck.

46.Kf3

Now 46..Rb1 allowed me to win the b-pawn and eventually game.
