The Eurocup was held in a pleasant venue in Rogaška Slatina, Slovenia, with several hotels conveniently near the playing hall. The food was also well above average for this event.
Unfortunately the event ended in disappointment for my OSG Baden-Baden team. After winning our first five matches and sharing the lead before the last round it was a dismal conclusion. We didn’t have much luck with the pairings and playing the strongest rated team at the end wasn’t ideal. I didn’t help matters losing with White but my opponent Teimur Radjabov did play an impressive game.
