Have a look at that.
|Jun-11-11|| ||offramp: Daniel Gormally isone of my favourite players and here he takes his opponent to the *&^cking cleaners! All out aggression really can pay off!|
|Aug-21-11|| ||Eggman: Anyone, like me, who was wondering what the pun refers to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_vsM...|
|Aug-21-11|| ||profK: Just develop and don't push too many pawns...the truism is probably true, even here !!|
|Aug-21-11|| ||Tigranny: Not one of the prettiest games I've seen as Game Of The Day...|
|Aug-21-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Wow. Wild slug-fest, I like it!|
|Aug-21-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: 2...h6?! 3...g5?
Bad moves ... VERY bad!
|Aug-21-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: Haha! I THOUGHT this gamme looked familiar.
Just looked at the comments ... hard to believe that I kibitzed on this game almost 5 YEARS ago!!!!

|Aug-21-11|| ||Everett: <LIFE Master AJ: 2...h6?! 3...g5?|
Bad moves ... VERY bad!>
Wrong, after 2..h6, white has the lowest winning percentage! 3..g5 is uncompromising.
and please take some ammonium to tighten up your diarrhea of posts.
|Aug-21-11|| ||LIFE Master AJ: A new book I have - A GM calls 2...h6? anti-positional. (Who am I to argue?)|
|Aug-21-11|| ||bengalcat47: If Black takes the Bishop at move 5 he falls into a variation of the Fool's Mate, where this time it is White who delivers the fatal blow!|
|Aug-21-11|| ||felix90: 19 Bxe6 Qxe6
20 Qg8+ Ke7
21 Qxa8 Qb6+
22 Kc1 Rf8
23 Rd7+ !
|Aug-21-11|| ||hedgeh0g: If you've already moved your f-pawn in the opening, it's hardly ever a good idea to follow it up with h3 or h6 as it opens up an array of violent tactical possibilities involving the sensitive e-h diagonal. I would be VERY wary of playing into my opponent's preparation like Black did in this game.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||Everett: Here is a question for all the free-thinkers on this site who want some sort of truth beyond "don't push pawns on the K-side early" or "I read it in a book so it must be true."|
Black has a few options on move 11, and one that seem to leave him with an advantage. Yes, advantage for black. The video offers it, but I imagine if you look at the position yourself it makes perfect sense.
Perhaps, maybe, just possibly, Simon Kim Williams was on the right path after all.
|Aug-22-11|| ||kellmano: Simon Williams says Gormally is the most naturally talented player he knows. Don't know why you'd play something this provocative if you hold your oppoenet in such high esteem. Probably because Williams does not take the game of chess too seriously.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||kevin86: Odd opening line-is it sound?|
|Aug-22-11|| ||Everett: <User: kellmano>|
Perhaps Williams will want to play the way he wishes, with his favorite Dutch Defense, which he's analyzed more than anything else he plays. The Dutch itself is already provocative anyway.
And, of course, chess itself is a game that shouldn't be taken too seriously.
<kevin86> regarding its soundness, I have no idea. I do know if it is not, white did not play the refutation, as 11..e6 seems to put Black in a good positon.
|Aug-22-11|| ||haydn20: I think Black is lost after 11...exf6. The best I could do after 11...e6 is 12. Be2 Qxf6 13. Bh5 Qxf2+ 14. Kd1 d5 15. Nd2 and I have no idea what's going on. One thing even patzers like me know is that the old dogmas about openings (e.g. h6 is "anti-positional") are valid only as guidelines, not gospel.|
|Aug-22-11|| ||4tmac: 5. Be2 Kf7!? 6. g4!? (or Bg3) That's ridiculous.|
|Dec-19-11|| ||FSR: The little-known 3.Bf4! is better than the usual 3.Bh4. Opening Explorer|
|Dec-19-11|| ||King Death: This whole line looks crazy to me, and the game is straight out of Morphy-NN where he just develops his pieces and squashes some hapless player who has no grasp of basic principles of developmemt.|
|Dec-19-11|| ||Domdaniel: This type of thing isn't unusual in England, where there has been a vast amount of research into 'Anti-Dutch' lines such as 2.Bg5 and 2.h3/3.g4.|
Much of it by Simon Williams, although he now plays the Dutch less frequently than he used to.
|Dec-19-11|| ||Penguincw: Right at the last minute, black realizes the unprotection of the rook on a8.|
|Dec-19-11|| ||Domdaniel: Gormally may have won this one. He may be a tough GM-punching kinda guy. But Williams is a better writer, and his DVDs are fun. I'm sorry to see him give up the Classical Dutch, but he realized that playing it against GMs wasn't a great idea.|
Gormally's book on tactics and calculation reads as if it was thrown together in a rush. Some good analysis, in no particular order, linked by clumps of dodgy prose.
