"...but chess is like karma and next day luck was not on my side at all..."


Anish on Bundesliga (round 8 and 9)
analysing both of his own games


Just a week after Wijk aan Zee, which has been a definite success for me (the details and games commented by me- later!), I had to play in the Bundesliga. I was keen to get back to the game once again, just before fully jumping into my school for a looong (maybe even few full weeks!! :D) period of time. The first game was a huge bunch of luck while a second one a lapsus of concentration...Could be better, but that's always the case with our great game- chess. :) It's by the way also quite funny to notice that the weekend ended in the 50%, the percentage, I was so much used to, during the last month, while enjoying the seaside of Wijk aan Zee. Here are both games, annotated. Enjoy!

Funny how my approach paid of at the end, but chess is like karma and next day luck was not on my side at all...

Giri, A. (2677) - Gashimov, V. (2719)
