|Nov-09-03|| ||Chessical: Chessical: Alekhine wrote: "This move (8.0-0) suggested by Prof.I.L.Rice, has not, truth to tell, any theoretical value, since Black can revert to a variation of the Kieseritski Gambit, not unfavourable to him, by 8...0-0. Moreover, he runs no risk in accepting the temporary sacrifice of the N, since white as master practice has shown, cannot hope for more than a draw after a long and difficult struggle". Alekhine goes onto say that the gambit does offer "a multitude of very complicated tatical possibilities" (Alekhine, My Best Games of Chess, Vol 1, game 32) |
|Nov-12-03|| ||Benzol: <Chessical> Many thanks. So it is sound but it's an uphill struggle to draw. Worth trying perhaps on an unprepared opponent. |
