Alondra Park Open round four

Oct 26, 2011, 4:33 AM |

This was a single section club tournament, with one G/60 (no increment!) round per week for six weeks.  As a low expert I was the top seed.  Coming into round four I was 2.5/3, having taken a bye in round two, and my opponent was 2.5/3 after giving up a draw in round three.

I have since taken to adopting the somewhat more respectable 4 Nf3, but I don't yet know it in any great detail.  I was excited to see Andrew Greet's new book on how to handle the "unusual" (i.e. other than the big four) defenses to 1 e4.  He's an excellent author, and my copy of the book is in the mail.
