   Apr-05-08 King's Gambit Declined, Falkbeer Counter Gambit (C31) (replies)
 
Auggie: According to G.M. Neil McDonald in his book, The Kings Gambit, white has good winning chances in the Falkbeer, and as a result, it is rarely if ever played at the highest levels these days. Personally I prefer either the Modern Defense with 3...d5 or the Fischer defense with 3.. d6.
 
   Apr-01-08 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
 
Auggie: drkodos Who the fork hasn't seen the Tromp? Not even the point. The fact is that if they are forced to play against it they don't have as much of a well versed book line to reinforce their play.
 
   Mar-29-08 Queen's Gambit Declined, Tarrasch (D34) (replies)
 
Auggie: I rather think that the Tarrasch is an excellent opening since it immediately turns a closed game into an open one which most queen pawn players disdain, else why open with the queen pawn ? Most players I have faced would much rather see some dull, run of the mill Kings Indian.
