gambitking
Member since May-20-08 · Last seen Aug-09-11
I'm from Virginia and lived most of my life in California, though I've lived in England, Scandinavia, and Greece. My favourite players are Mikhail Tal, Anatoly Karpov, and in the modern era Alexei Shirov. I also liked Frank Marshall, Adolf Anderssen, Bent Larsen, and Giacchino Greco. My playing style is attacking, and I like gambits (especially the King's gambit and Danish gambit). I'm not that good, but I'm studying to try to get better.

gambitking: Who is this guy anyway?

gambitking: After 15. P-B4 ch. (c4+), the end would have been near. Instead, White let Black get his pieces out.

gambitking: <I love how stereotypical so many chess players are towards the Latvian gambit. Why? Because they dont understand it. You fall into this category. I shouldnt be surprised though. This coming from a person who thinks the Kings gambit is refuted.> You're right! I play the ...

gambitking: If 7. B-K2, then 7. ...Kt-B3! 8. 0-0 B-B4 9. P-Q4 Q-K3! 10. B-K3 B-Q3!! Gives Black enough latent potential to generate a good attack on the kingside... or just see Gamman-Blackburne London 1869... < Gamman vs Blackburne, 1869 ; The Gambit King

gambitking: It's not true that after 5. Kt-B7 Q-K2 6. KtxR P-Q4 7. B-K2 White has a 'Won position'. In my league the Latvian Gambit is one of my main defences. After 7. ...Kt-B3! 8. 0-0 B-B4! 9. P-Q4 Q-K3! 10. B-K3!? B-Q3! I have found that Black has good compensation for the exchange, as ...

gambitking: Awesome sacrifice at the end. This just shows how the two bishops are better than the two knights... The Gambit King

gambitking: I like this opening as black. It's in the spirit of Ol' Blue Light, Stonewall Jackson; leading a fearless counterattack on the Kingside second only to the Greco Counterattack The Gambit King

gambitking: Here again is shown the power of the Alekhine gun (though sort of in reverse), a common theme (along with other tactics) in the King's Gambit and other attacking openings. The Gambit King

gambitking: Nice mating pattern at the end... this is common in good openings like the King's Gambit The Gambit King
 
   May-23-08 Fedorov vs Z Gyimesi, 2001 (replies)
 
gambitking: Very nice... The win at the end was incredible
