i'm playing at Perth this coming weekend, and having looked at the entries i see i'm up against some tough opposition. There's quite a few players there whom i talk to regularly on the tournament and league circuits, but can't remember if i'd actually played against them before. There's also a few that i've played against on more than one occasion, i kinda know what to expect if i'm drawn against them.
Got me thinking about what to expect from those i hadn't played before, and those i hadn't played against for some time.
So i got my Chessbase out and started looking at some of their previous games to prepare for the weekend. Anyone else do this kinda thing?
