IGB Dato’ Arthur Tan Malaysia Open 2010

Game against Bangladeshi GM Ziaur Rahman.

The 7th IGB Dato Arthur Tan Malaysia Open 2010 took place in Kuala Lumpur 1st-7th September 2010. I started well, winning first three games. In the first round in the position where I had a king, knight and pawn, and the opponent, having only king, did not intend to give up, I played a little prank by promoting pawn not to a queen, but to a bishop instead.
After round 8 my rating performance was 2579. To fulfill my last grandmaster norm I had to win the last game. But failed. In a very promising position against Chinese GM Xu Jun I began to sacrifice my pieces too early and too many...

Ashot Nadanian. Result: 5,5 out of 9, Rating Average: 2453, Rating Performance: 2533.
