so the first two games are set for April 10th here in Owen Sound, so i get the home board advantage lol. I'm soooooooooooo not prepared for this it's not even funny...i'm not even sure what i'm playing. it looks like i might try the Sicilian, but we'll see. i'm not sure between 1.e4, 1.d4 and 1.Nf3 it will likely be a game time decision. my biggest concern now is focus and clock management. kirk has been working with me but we'll see.
i was going over my match with Clinton today, and man i need to pick up my play if i'm going to compete with this guy. not that he's fabulous by any stretch of the imagination but my play was decidedly weak. if i'm going to bring up complex positions i need to play more accurately.
