This week sees the Torneo Virgen Blanco at Ogueta in Vitoria-Gasteiz and many of the matches are freely available on ETB-Sat. Competetion started yesterday with the mano a mano semi-finals, which saw Beroiz and Arretxe II proceed to the final, defeating Retegi Bi and Urrutikoetxea respectively. The first of the doubles semi finals takes place tonight (television schedule below).

On Saturday there is a special match unattached to the tournament proper, between Martinez de Irujo and Olaizola II, which should set the pulses of Vitoria-Gasteiz racing. Olaizola was of course heavily beaten by Irujo in the Manomanista final but has since gained some sort of revenge with a comprehensive defeat of his major rival in the Navarrese 4 1/2 Final. Unfortunately though, this will not be available on the web.
