Going to war
. . . Tomorrow the Corus tournament begins for us with the nine-round events. After the tournament in Groningen last Christmas I wasn't satisfied with my 3. ... Qd6 of the scandinavian. Allthough I wanted to focus solely on positional play I couldn't but help to study the Caro Kann. The book of Houska has given me enough understanding to dare to give it a try tomorrow. I will play for the first time in group four and I hope to manage to uphold myself in that group, but it will be tough, I guess. Margriet will be playing in group 8.
