Good, Bad, Grob and the Ugly Fredthebear
Compiled by fredthebear
--*--

The Grob Opening 1.g4?! is an unorthodox, unsound opening, with many amusing miniatures to prove it. Watch your step! Black seems to have an easy game in control of the center but then finds himself snared upside-down. There are opening traps and creative middlegames, but matters are usually resolved prior to an endgame. Henri Grob was an excellent tactician, perhaps the equal of Clint Eastwood on the draw!!

The games herein are mostly sorted by the White player or specific defense. (Yes, there are some label variation errors, which occurs in all openings.)

Grob Gambit refers to 1.g4 d5 2.Bg2. Black may accept or decline the pawn. Like most White gambits, accepting the pawn tends to be riskier for Black in the early going. If White is not up to the task of offering the g-pawn gambit in response to 1...d5, s/he can play 2.h3 or 2.g5 instead of 2.Bg2.

Note that Basman's version of the Grob plays out much slower, usually from closed positions in a creepy, crawly fashion, reluctant to initiate exchanges. (Basman is tremendous at seizing control of open lines when they finally do occur.) Most players would probably prefer Claude Bloodgood's more active style developing the queenside immediately. Both players delay castling, if at all.

You may find Claude Bloodgood's personal biography interesting or appalling, but he does have a unique place in chess history. It has been said that chess is a sport for people with a lot of time on their hands! Perhaps it is a sport for those lacking other opportunities, particularly the poor or isolated. Then again, chess is a sport for anyone and everyone, anytime, any place, world wide. Chess is it's own language.
