November 4-6 2010
Back in Schiltigheim and it seems like playing at home. It is the shortest trip of the year and I play here often. If I pass the qualifiers, that is. This year organizer Claude Vath had lowerd the number of seeded players from 20 to 8 and introduced pre-qualifications. The quarter finalists of last year are seeded, I was ninth and World Champ Sanchez tenth. Now we end up in the same pre-qualfier group together with Nelin and Legazpi. A tough task.
