Bloody battles

     There have been played 2 rounds in the Romanian Chess Championship. There've been a lot of surprises in the men's section so far, with a lot of draws on the top boards yesterday.

     Here you can see a game that has impressed me:

There are 13 players with a 2/2 score and I guess that there will be much less after today's double round. You can follow the live games here:

     We've got to play only 9 rounds, unlike men- who have to play 11, so we don't have any double rounds.
     Here are some photos I took this morning:
