'roln111' is back on track!

Recently 'ronl111' (Ilya Shikshin) has been having bad luck: he lost some games on time, and in his last handicap game (as White) he was only behind by 0,5 points. This month, he played a total of 10 games (not counting with the game that you can see here) - and he lost 6, giving him a winning percentage of only 40%...

Fortunately he is still sharp as usual, as you can see from his last game. Black 21 (Q2) shows his aggressive style. The fighting was impressive, typical of Korean games - they do not mind playing 'ugly' shapes such as Black 47 (M6), as long as they work.

After the fight was over in the lower right part of the board, White managed to live... but in gote. Black got a huge compensation, Black 107 (S14), after which White's right side group was as good as dead. It was an amusing game, and Ilya proved that he is still the best fighter in Europe and why his opponents must be afraid of him!
