I still owe you one last game. DGT board worked fine, but chess wise I wasn’t that satisfied. After my opponent gave me a pawn for nothing I played too sloppy. With a score of +4 =4 -1 I finished 8th. The only defeat was based on a technical error in a winning position.
The town championship is already finished but I still owe you two games. So here is a nice fight from round 8.

In the opening I chose the Dirty Harry Sicilian, a nice surprise weapon not only in blitz or rapid games. Perhaps it’s also playable in «over the board» tournament games at our level.

…at my DGT board in a kind of official tournament:
…well, almost ;-).
