Thanks Muzzy, Boris and Garett, I certainly will need some luck in this strong competition.
I haven't managed any special preparations in chess, apart from the psychological phase during the game which will strengthen my mind and keep it focused.

I am sure it will be fun to play and visit "Bosna" chess club in Sarajevo, which is also one of strongest clubs in Europe, to shoot some nice pics with GMs (which I am going to post on chesschat) and some games.

I am looking forward is to try traditional Bosnian food made in Old part of Sarajevo called "Bascarsija" made in "moulding clay pots" and "firewood ovens".
The Most Important part for me will be my parents that will support me during Bosnia Open.

I have noticed that GM Shoojat Ghane(2375)who is now regular visitor at Doeberl Cup and SIO has registered to play in the tournament.

On 29/04/2010 I am out of the Country flying with Emirates (for me Emirates has the best service of all airlines with the fastest route to Europe) and with my "Blue Monroi" in the pocket..
The Tournament starts on 05/05/2010 but I need 4- 5 days to adapt to the climate like GM Vishny Anand. I will also be inspecting chairs, boards etc.:lol:

My Parents and I have safely arrived in Sarajevo, from Munich via Lufthansa Airline. The Munich Airport is a really "Giant" and has everything. The Service during the Flight and on the Airport from Lufthansa was excellent. I am suprised that Lufthansa is using one of the new planes for Flights to Bosnia.

I am happy that I have chosen nice place for accommodation, it has everything and is central.

The list of the players has increased to over 150 participants.
Live Games start today at 10.30 pm and can be seen on 25 Boards.

I wonder why white did not claim a draw by the 50-move rule as he could have done from move 119 onwards. Based on the time control the players are required to score all the way through so he could have done so if he wanted.

Thanks for the news and games!

I was my self wandering about the draw rules after 50 moves of the repetition.
However, all decisions are made by IA Mirza Miralem and I believe that he was absent for the certain time ( I my self went to dinner), but this is just my opinion. I am going to ask him today.

GM Timofeev RUS 2677 vs IM Rapport HUN 2509
25 Year old vs 14 Year Old (who missed a win) on the Board No.5
This complicated position appeared with white to play (see full game in the next post which is instructive for the players who would like to see win with 2 pawns & Rook against 1 pawn and rook - beginners endgame):

Apparently according to Arbiter, GM Kurajica didn't claim a draw (or forgotten that he has to claim a draw ???), as he was concentrated on defence.

Thanks JaK.
I am sure that Australian chesschat members and visitors can enjoy one of the best pics of the 2010 Bosna International Tournament.
Furthermore, I have received warning from my Father to seat down, play chess and not wandering around the venue with the camera.
Guess what, I have chosen second option as we all know how far is Australia from the International Chess events.
I know that you are an "Interview lover", so I may try to do something for you.

Rd 7 / Board 1 - GM Jan Gustaffson (GER - 2640) sneaked in...... :
It is an amazing story that GM Timofeev (2677) is still on the board 1 and playing well. In the Rd4 he became very nervous against young IM Rapport (HUN) 2409 as his position was lost but " Good Luck" helped him to save the game.

and finally closing ceremony: GM Hao Wang, as 1st at Bosna 2010, has earned an invitation to play at CORUS 2011 in the top group.
Something about GM Hao Wang: "Unbelivable" friendly personality, enjoys to play in Bosnia, as he said everything is with "relax" and easy.
I can say that Sarajevo hospitality has improved for 1000 % in compare to Year 2005, when I visited capital city of Bosnia. Accommodation and food costs are still 100 % cheaper than in other countries in Europe.

Interesting to see the difference the 3-1-0 system makes over a long tournament in spacing out a large field.

Wang Hao won the tournament scoring 23 points (+7=2-1) ahead of Efimenko with 22 (+6=4) and Bologan also 22 (+7=1-2) then five players on 21 (+6=3-1). In the usual points system (ignoring any difference in the pairings) Wang and Efimenko would have tied for first on 8, with Bologan and all the players who scored 21 (+6=3-1) tied for third on 7.5. I wonder if, as well as encouraging sharper play, systems like 3-1-0 and 5-2-0 reduce the number of ties.

Congratulations to Bosnia for being able to organise such tremendously prestigious events! This country is an inspiration to the rest of the world as they have suffered so much and still showing to all of us what can be achieved with hard work, perseverence and good will. The fact that representatives of all countries involved in a murderous war only a few years ago, were there playing chess, shows how much can be achieved through sport! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Congratulations to all the winners, participants and organisers!:clap: :clap: :clap:

And last but not least congratulations to Amir for compiling this series of informative articles, complete with fine despriptions and pictures! :clap: :clap: :clap:
