Nov-24-08  notyetagm: <slomarko: ... the idea was soon picked by other players like Wojtaszek, <<<Carlsen>>> and Fressinet.>

If Carlsen played it, then it *has* to be good. :-)

Nov-24-08  slomarko: sorry notyetagm i don' thave that info. i read in a polish forum that the russian chess magazine "64" also had an article about this gambit:

  Tabanus: Gajewski came 2nd today in the strong Open 'Mediterranean 2017' Rijeka (CRO) 2009:

Jun-17-10  slomarko: Gajewski married Joanna Majdan. Congratulations!
Jul-19-10  Remizatorul: Only 5 photos here...
Mar-06-11  Caissanist: Winner of the 2011 Capelle La Grande tournament:
Mar-07-11  Kazzak: Hmmm. Have played through Mr. Gajewski's games. Inventive play and strong. It appears he's gone through an evolution in his development as a player.

This year's La Capelle had a formidable field, and two dosen players were in contention for the top spot, which Gajewski decided with half a point's margin. His La Capelle games are worth studying. Pgn at official site.

  offramp: He is 33 today, and he is therefore Player of the Day.

I will remember him because of this great kibitz:

Lev Polugaevsky (kibitz #100)

<I kinda hope the Polish GM Grzegorz Gajewski will produce a son he'll name Paulo.

Seems to me <Paulo Gajewski> would be pronounced very much like <Polugaevsky>.>

Premium Chessgames Member
  ketchuplover: He's currently Vishy's second.
