Every time when I sit down at the chessboard, a war with several small struggles takes place: One against my opponent, another one against the clock, and the most important and difficult of all, the struggle against myself.
Chess is the most beautiful game, the creation of art, and more than anything, a never ending struggle that entirely fulfills my mind...

Game 6: Vela vs. Ramirez (1-0)
A tense struggle.
White develops quickly and gets a very active position, sacrifices a pawn for a big attack on black's king which end in a good material advantage. There's some sort of counterattack for black with bishop and queen, plus the usual time trouble on both sides, but when I manage to exchange the queens the game is over, black loses his bishop also. A nice chess game to remember for me.
