[Chirila, Cristian]

I started this game with high spirits and I was ready for a long, hard fought battle. I knew my opponent will try to win the game because of his rating superiority. 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 b6 [3...d5 4.Nc3 Be7 5.Bf4 ] 4.g3 Bb7 [4...Ba6 5.Qb3 ] 5.Bg2 Be7 6.0-0 0-0 7.Nc3 Ne4 8.Bd2 In here my knowledge of the position ended, I don't think Alex had too much experience in these positions either, so overall I thought it will be a battle of ideas rather than a battle of home preparation.
