"White ignores the firmly held dogma that one should open the game with a center pawn.  More particularly, the opening flouts a strongly held opinion that the castled position on the king's wing is sacrosanct and should be kept as a haven for white or black king at all costs.  However, I feel that the king can be used more flexibly-from his position in the center of the board, provided the pawns in front of him are not advanced too recklessly." -IM Michael Basman. The Killer Grob 

 

 

This tournament should be fun and have many a unique positions getting us out of book lines early.
