Budapest Spring Festival 2017 March 18
The biggest tournament of the year has arrived. Otherwise just another normal day.
Attacking the Flexible Sicilian includes 38 annotated games and weighs in at 400 pages. I don’t play 1.e4 but this seemed like a great book to look at.

Monday 6-board TCh Rd8(Mar 13)
The other team only had 4 players so my services were not needed.
From the previous round in the Monday league
MTK narrowly beat UKSE 3,5-2,5 last round.
White managed to find a decent plan here.
Some pics from Mar 13
I lost rather horribly by not understanding or seeing anything.
White to play and crush(me).
Honestly I just did not see the rather obvious followup.
I put off looking at the game for a week or so and got down to figuring out what the improvements should be. Here Black has to devise a better plan than my 10..Qc7?!
I think 10..Rc7 is the key move, to be followed by ..d6 and ..Nb8-d7 to release the Bb7.
