The wonderful world of the Grob

A small but crazy group of club players experienced the full beauty of the Grob opening (1.g4) in an Allegro setting last Tuesday. Some players thrived, some floundered, but they each came across positions that they otherwise would never encounter.

Next week is the start of the club championship and reserves.

Standing at round 5 (last round)
