Four Away Two Away

This month's column tackles one of the easiest special scores to understand and one my most favorite scores to write about, four away two away, or -4 -2.

While it's easy to understand anyone who hasn't take the time to understand it will make massive errors in actual play. At your typical tournament I like to watch matches when I'm not playing and even strong players misplay this score from the get go and there's no excuse. It's one of my favorites to write about because all I'm going to be doing is cramming a bunch of early game plays, rollouts, and theory down your throat.
