Although I did not play much chess in Istanbul (apart from the 2 games for PNG), I did manage to play some chess while in Istanbul. I am of course talking about online chess, or in my case turn based chess. I had one game from a match on chess.com still bubbling along, and although I headed off to Istanbul with a clear advantage, it was good to get a resignation while there. Playing a reasonably successful anti-Caro system (2.Nc3, 3.Qf3) I reached a position where I could launch a queenside attack against the castled king. The key move was 26.cxb6 and after that I had a winning advantage.
