With the starting time being an hour earlier than on day one, some players arrived a little late for the start of their game.
The referee started all clocks at 10am sharp.

The heat is overwhelming again today, only this time we started the cooling systems a lot earlier so it is still relatively cool in the playing room.

How impressive can concentration be?

More tension in the room especially at the boards where players are fighting for their first victory and the chance to keep playing in the European Championship.

In the end two upsets where noticed Lukas Podpera 7d from Czechia managed to win his game against Artem Kachanovskyi 2p from the Ukraine, and Lucas Neirynck 5d from Belgium was able to beat Cristian Pop 7d from Romania.

From tomorrow only 24 players are left in the European championship as all players with 2 losses are out and will play instead in the main tournament.
