    Uniteer, thanks for creating this "UNIT" series tournament. It is a great "community" and approach to explore various openings and strategies as a team/group and learn from each other. Have fun everyone!

    If anyone is a fan of Alekhine you should check out some of the videos I've uploaded here.  I haven't played this opening in a long time, so I'm glad to have an excuse to re-engage.
