Baden-Baden Champions 2011One advantage of playing for a strong team is that is quite easy to win a competition without contributing much personally. So it was a pleasant change of pace to finish the German season with 2 wins in important matches v Eppingen and Werder Bremen and a decent score of 7,5/9. Much better than last season when my ‘contribution’ against Bremen was less useful. One oddity in the German league is that all games are rated on your ELO at the start of the season otherwise I might have gained a few more rating points .
