Off to Havana

I am currently waiting for boarding at Pearson Airport. I am flying to Havana to play in the Premier Group of the Capablanca Memorial. My section will have a 10 player round robin, with 9 GMs, and a 2560 average rating.

The games start on Wednesday. I thought it would be a good idea to arrive in Havana two days before the tournament starts. There will be no “settling in” with the first few rounds. No easy games and a lot of hard fought battles. Some of the players who played in Toluca will be taking part here as well.

Time to fly!
