|I live at Hungary, near Budapest. I do not have a rating yet in real life, but I play in my local chess club's team in board #10.
I usually choose lesser-known openings like the Ponziani, the 2. Bc4 variation of the Alekhine's Defense, Budapest Defense to 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4, Taimanov or Polugayevsky Sicilian and I'm still learning the Queen's Indian.
Sometimes I play gambits, my favourites are: Muzio, Ghulam-Kassim, Von Hennig-Schara, Budapest, Blackmar-Diemer, Gibbins-Weidenhagen etc.|
I usually study great players' games for ideas and other things, and as addition to that I would like to share the discovery of lesser-known masterpieces like I Pleci vs L Endzelins, 1939 etc.
There are some "lesser-known" players who also gained my attention:
Emil Joseph Diemer (nevermind the picture:)
Andre Lilienthal (he won games against 5 world champions for example: Lilienthal vs Capablanca, 1935 and still living and driving a car, at age 99!)
Dragoljub Velimirovic: His system is the most useful one (for me).
