GM Alex Finkel About Dortmund 2006

Anyway if we try to be serious for a short while, playing seven games tourney is a very tricky task. Every mistake could be crucial because there is no time to fix it afterwards, especially if you get to play 3 games with white and 4 games with black. In such a strong field with no obvious underdogs losing a single game is very likely to mean that chances of winning the tournament are getting very low. These factors might be a heavy burden for the players, as taking risks could backfire. For that reason a good start is highly important. Winning one of the first two games should be a major trump in the forthcoming play.
