Lenzerheide Swiss Championship Starts

Hello everyone!

Today I arrived to the charming Swiss town of Lenzerheide, in the Eastern part of Switzerland. Tomorrow the National Swiss Chess Championship is starting, and I will participate in the Men’s closed event. It will be the strongest championship on record, with 5 GM’s playing (me, Yannick Pelletier, Viktor Kortschnoi, Joe Gallagher and Florian Jenni), and 5 IM’s (Ekström, Züger, Kurmann, Forster, Huss).
