    I watched countless games there, and starte couple of threads here, commenting some interesting moments.

    Yesterday I played a very first game (*finally) and I won.
    But this game, which I am going to show first created oportunity for me to play.
    I packed my thing and left the suitcase ad backpack in luggage room,and before my flight to Copenhagen, I had couple of hours for quick lunch and chess on Max Euweplein.

    I came when this game was in progress. Sympatico woman played queenless from early stage in the game, and in this position, I and my future opponent disputed over suggestions to the woman, as we both wanted to second her against materially stronger opponent.

    Or:::https://s23.postimg.org/sdthkt7tn/DSCN1267.jpg

    White just gave a check and I thought weongly she has to accept perpetual check with ...Bf8, but she played Kd7 and after Qxd4+, she said
    "Smart move, man..." and I one more guy tried to help her. She was about to play ...Nd5, because Knght was defended by Bishop on h1.
    (*Amazing how Black without queen can hold the position.)
    But other guy suggested ...Bd6 in the position on the diagram.
    She listend to him and played it.
    My vanity was hurt. Then White can take Knight on e3.
    But how.
    "Oh councilors, councilors!" said the woman.
    The guy tried to justify himself with variation
    1...Bd6 2. Qxe3 Bc5, but I saw White could plaz 3. d4!

    And then white took Knight with his King.
    An then woman played Kf5++ double check, and no one of us saw it!!

    And my game?
    Well, during the previous game, the other councilor asked me if I would like to play, and so it was decided that two of us play next game.
    Pity I can't remember the moves after 9th or so.
    I began as black with variation which Ljubojevic played a lot in seventies, and Short in recent times.
    Here are the pics-> last one is the moment he reigned.
    He tried unsound sacrifice of the Knight for pawn, I think he expected it to be just exchange which will leave him with Pawn extra. I'll try to remember the game tomorrow, but chances are zero.

    Dang, I missed seeing Max Euweplein when I was there. Oh well, maybe next time.
