The Draw - Group C

We received the tournament draw today, courtesy of email sent by Maxime Cassis, EBSA General Secretary. The Masters category looks as competitive as ever with a eclectic mix of talent and nationalities. I have been drawn in Group C (right).

I haven't had the pleasure of playing any of these players before, but I am particularly looking forward to my match with the 2006 European Masters champion, the classy Jyri Virtanen from Finland. Having been in the same group as Doron Lavi from Israel last year, I am expecting a similar tough challenge from his compatriot Yakov Shaashoa.

The other groups in the Masters section look very competitive as well. Steve Judd (Former English Champion) and PTC qualifier is in Group E along with the experienced Paul Jamieson from Scotland who is coming here having just won his local scratch championship. Throw in Allan Norvak from Denmark and you have a very exciting group and one I will be keeping an eye on. Click here to follow all groups.

Having said that, all of the matches will be a challenge and with 7 players in each group we get one more match than last year, I am looking forward to every one. Can't wait.
