  Benzol: This match was arranged to prove the soundness of the " Rice Gambit ". What, however, was the conclusion? Sound or not.

  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)

  Benzol: <Chessical> Many thanks. So it is sound but it's an uphill struggle to draw. Worth trying perhaps on an unprepared opponent.
