The 1st round of the European Youth Team Chess Championship (EYTCC) is history. But those who expected many safe victories of the alleged favourites at the start were deceived. Especially in the U18, where all teams except Turkey are more or less on the same level, there was a lot of fighting chess to see.

Board 1 showed an exciting game in which Halit Kann Kesgin brought Luis Engel and his English opening into great distress with an early push f5-f4.
