It's good that the Selangor Open gives us enough time to fix our lines before Asian Youth. The games with Shreyes, Abdul Rahim Ramli, IM Srinath and FM Nicholas Chan gave us new insights to some of the flaws in our openings. I am sure that the Asian Youth will unveil new flaws but if we fix as much as we can, as best as we can, here and now, it will optimise what we can learn there.
On the flip side, we have new found confidence in the lines that held against tough opponents.
We were fortunate to get to play with both IM Srinath and FM Nicholas. This gives us a better sense of the gap. Also it is much cheaper to learn here than to go all the way to Philippines for those lessons.
