After I pulled myself together after the stupid zero against a player that probably won't make it, the worst of pairings was mine: the highest rate youngster in Germany: Ruben Koellner. What an annoying brat! Making noises, shaking and shaling in the opponents time, trying to make eye-contact, writing variations on the second paper, and more undeveloped nonsense.
No worries, I don't blame this indeed talented kiddo, but his parents should be ashamed. A real boring game, in which he played slow moves, followed, with an easy draw as result. But the I made the blunder of the century, giving away mate in 4.
I have not played anywhere in my level, and when I do not win the next two games, this tournament will be disastrous.
