Czech Open A 2013 Rd1-GM Boros,D

TWIC 977-Pardubice 2013
GMs Boros(HUN) and Gonda(HUN) finished with 6/9.

Life was not so easy for GM Boros in the first round as he battled hard against the Sicilian Dragon. The old 11.Bh6 was nothing special but it did induce black to weaken his pawns. However, white could not break through on the kingside and the game turned to black’s favor.

Nice chess lady
