Until Bilbao I don’t think I had played a 4 player double round event in my life, but less than a week later I was starting a second.The traditional UnivĂ© tournament in Hoogoveen was very welcoming, a impressive mix of old and new, one nice touch was the traditional wooden old style demonstration boards in the tournament hall.

I was happy to claw back to a 50% score after an unimpressive start, some interesting variations remained in the shadows in my last round game.
