Josef Varosi Open Final Standings

Mester,A won with a perfect 6-0 score. I took =2nd with Mezei, Dombai and Nogrady. In the last round, Juhasz was in control againt Mester but blundered a piece.

The weather was beautiful for three days so all in all this was another Budapest bargain weekend of chess.
The entry fee(net of 10% discount from the Budapest Discount Card-from the Hungarian Chess Federation) was 9.6EUR/12.6/USD/12.5CAD.

The discount card costs 1000HUF(3.6EUR/4.7USD/4.6CAD). The only catch is waiting for the card. Participating tournament organisers download a cardholder list before every tournament to give eligible players their discounts.

The sad part of this and similar tournaments is that the games will go unpublished and unentered into any databases and just vanish.

Round 5 King’s Indian Yip-Czimer,J
I had some trouble after getting a nice position in the opening. Finally the game reached an ending and I managed to squeeze out a long win.

White to play
The c7 pawn is the only reasonably attackable weakness. How do you proceed?

Round 6 London System vs King’s Indian Bege,A-Yip
I was again confronted with the London System but this time I had a better idea of what to do. After some unusual play from white, this position was reached. I sank into thought to think of the correct plan.

Josef Varosi Open Day 2-Rounds 3-4

The second day of action saw Mester,A and Mezei,C  emerge with 4-0 scores. Three players follow with 3.5/4 followed by a large group with 3/4,

I won my third game against the #2 player Domabi(2181),I but lost the fourth game against Mezei,C(2105).

In my round 3 game I was white against Dombai. Play was sharp and white went over for a direct attack on the king. After 21…h6 here is the position
