Nice attacking game!
This year’s European Individual Championship is being held in Reykjavik, Iceland between August 26 and September 5. Thirty-six countries are represented with 180 participants, including 71 grandmasters and 32 IMs.
(Photo by L.Ootes) There are 11 rounds, with time control being the standard 40 moves in 90 minutes, followed by 30 minutes to finish (+30′ per move).
The tournament has seen many uncompromising fights and surprising upsets so far. It is always a pleasure to spectate when the players are filled with fighting spirit!
Today I want to demonstrate an entertaining game full of sharp tactics, twists and turns from the 1st round between the experienced GM Tamas Banusz (Elo: 2631;Hungary) and the young master Hilmit Heimisson (Elo: 2309; Iceland).
