Eilat: Round Three: Williams vs Palac GM Simon Williams

29 October 2012

In round three I had the White pieces against Mladen Palac, a 2600 Grandmaster from Croatia. A strong player, with a lot of experience.

Yet again, I played 1 e4, but this time I got to play the Grand Prix opening against my opponents Sicilian Defence.

I have played this opening on and off, since Gawain Jones, filmed a DVD for us on the opening. This DVD has helped me gain a number of brilliant scalps. Thanks Gawain! A video and notes of the encounter can be seen below.
