It is certainly not my intention to put scary pictures. I just wanted to say that I do not know what to say. STOP IT, PLEASE. LET THIS BABY LIVE IN PEACE.

GM David Howell (photo: official page)
Today he is facing another Chinese prodigy, the 14-year-old baby girl Hou Yifan, whos elo is 2557 and belongs to the large group of "4-pointers". The games are being very exciting, watching strongly recommended!
As for what is new here in La Pobla, everything is well and under control. :) Yesterday I won again, so did Mariam and Sopiko. GM Azer Mirzoev is leading with 5, Mariam and I have 4,5. Sopiko is staying on 4 since she lost a very well played game against GM Movsziszian the day before yesterday.
Today I am playing Mr. Mirzoev on board 1 with white, Mariam is against Movsziszian, and Sopiko against my yesterday´s opponent.
Yesterday some friends came from Barcelona to support us. It was great to see them again. Everything is quiet otherwise. We behave, eat healthy, and sleep well. LOL :-))) I am not sure you should believe the first and the third point though... But the fact, that I have not been to the pub since I am here, should count I think. Somehow I am lazy to stay up too late.
Tomorrow there will be a simultaneous exhibition in front of the hotel, offered by Mariam and Sopiko. Many look forward to it.
Have a nice day all.

Vinieron Joan y Enric tb, me alegré mucho de verlos de nuevo.
Conocimos a la pequeña Alexandra, que es una monada!!!!!!!!!! Con dos mesesitos y ya es toda una princesita! :-)
Yo, Mariam y Sopiko hicimos muchas fotos y videos, nos entró un ataque de risa y ya se sabe como se suele acabar eso... xDDD
Ahora están en la piscina, bronceandose... :-)

I didn´t post yesterday as I was somewhat tired in the evening when we got to the hotel after the round. We did not even go out afterwards, because, it was also cloudy and murky here. The weather has been great so far though. We stayed quiet talking to our friends on the internet and then I played some games on Playchess instead. Although I was lagging so badly I had no other choice than to stop and wait until the wifi got better at the hotel.
I drew with Mariam in a worse position, and I have now 2,5 out of 3. The game of the day probably was Roi Reinaldo vs. Maurici Tarrago, Roi was better the whole game and two pawns up (without any compensation) when I finished my game, and just when I arrived to the hotel, my manager informed me that Reinaldo lost on board 3. I was astonished and couldn´t believe that. Then I went directly to the live broadcasts page for the tournament to see what had happened. A tough blow!! He had missed a two-move (quite attractive, though) tactical stuff. I felt very sorry for Roi, I must admit...
Today is Guillem´s birthday. He is our friend and Sopiko&Keti&Mariam´s clubmate. They all play for a Catalonian Club called Peona i Peó. This summer he missed a chance to visit Georgia and he will make it next year hopefully, we do look forward to it. :) Happy Birthday, Guillem!
I am leaving, see you again soon.

I have just been asked by Ir0n a few minutes ago to also post in English. There have been approaches like that before, but apparently without much success, as I would put a few words, and then I would continue writing in Spanish again and again. Now I will take it into consideration, and more posts in English will appear. I have realised there are many who do not understand Spanish, and it would be so nice of me to make their lives easier! :-)
That said, I must recommend that also you learn Spanish, as it is an extremely beautiful and useful language. You are missing a lot if you don´t!
As for these days´news, I am right now in a small village in high mountains of Catalonia, called La Pobla. I am playing a strong Open Tournament here. For the moment I have scored 2 out of 2, as well as my nice and cute friends - Mariam and Sopiko (you can check their blogs on blogroll on right side of the blog). Unfortunately, Mariam will be my oponent tomorrow. I recall this happened last year too. It sucks... :-S But what to do?!?! We are professional chessplayers, and we do know it is important to deal with such happenings!
Everything is great out here, the village is very beautifull, very small actually. Everyone recognizes us, chess life is very active here. Many supporters come to follow our games daily.
There is also another very important fact there: the President of the Catalonian Chess Federation - Mr. Toni Ayza is playing himself. So does his younger son - Alex. David is the responsible for LIVE coverage. Actually Mr. Ayza plays lots of tournaments during the year. He is a very nice person. I have hardly met such an active and versatile President. He is doing a great job!
I will go to sleep now. Maybe I will post again tomorrow. I would like to also inform you that WIM Keti Tsatsalashvili and GM David Howell are actually playing the World Junior in Turkey. They are certainly our favs. :) Best of luck, guys!
