In round 8 we played Azeris, always a tough match in any European champ. or Olympiad. I was worse for most of the game against Z.Mamedyarova (WGM 2285) due to bad system choice but managed to exchange the most dangerous pieces of the opponent and drew. Unfortunately though, we lost 1.5-2.5.
In round 9 we got Puerto Rico and I had to play a 12 year old girl with 1916 ELO. I don’t even remember when I played a 12 year old last time! 🙂 Anyway, we won 4-0 🙂
