After The Second Day
For the second round, players started to arrive to the tournament hall by 3 pm. Interested parents watched the games from the public gallery and live from the internet. U17 and U15 categories saw challenging games whereas the games of other categories was rather short. In the U17 open category an interesting game was played on the second board between Javakhadze Zurab and Irmak Sipahioğlu.  In the middle game Irmak exchanged a knight in exchange for three pawns. Altought he had an active position, he lost the game due to his weak pawns. In the same category, FM Burak Fırat took home the full point against Demre Kerigani who came second in the last Turkish Championship, after a hard struggle with black pieces. One of Turkish national players Büşra Soydan, drew against WFM Rodriguez Rueda Paula Andrea in the U15 girls category. There are 10 players with 2 points in U11 open and 8 players in U13 open categories. This results shows us that these categories will be challenging as well.

                                                                                         May I ask something?
