Black has a solid lead in development and decides to go for an idea that is more fascinating than correct. -- Jacob Aaagard

.....My Chess life story.

I am a coffeehauser chess player from New Hampshire, USA and like a good attacking style game. Thus I play things like the King's Gambit, Danish, Traxler, Max Lange attack, Halloween Attack as White. As well as the 2 Knights, Reti Gambit, Englund Gambit, Marshall Attack, King Indian Defense as Black. Where I soon may be looking into the Benko Gambit, Perenyi Attack, Scandinavian Defense and Latvian Gambit. -of late my obsession has shifted from the Kings Gambit as white to the Halloween Gambit. Game Collection: Halloween Gambit -Let's Sack a Knight on Move 4

My collections reflect some of the Chess Attacking books that I like.

I did the Rapid Chess Improvement 7 Circles thing back in the 2000's and wrote about it in a blog here. http://takchess.blogspot.com/

I have created most of these collections will try to credit those who I copied in time.

My playing strength is on the left side of the bell curve of members of chessgames.com. Had an 8 year break and just picking up chess again. I currently limit my playing online too addicting. My wife says I can play all the chess I want once I retire.......

takchess: I thought this might be about the undefended bishop on g3 based on its protector being pinned. Was unclear to me how to punish that weakness though.

takchess: My pun 8) Saw Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters in Boston this year. His band is quite good. Covered a number of Zep tunes and were similar and different enough to be enjoyable. Did a great Misty Mountain Hop with a Rock Blue Grass sound.

takchess: Happy Thursday. The only two options I saw to start it off is does the rook or the bishop take the pawn. Clearly it's the bishop; I didn't calculate every step but something I would see OTB.

  takchess: I am slowly building some Puzzle of the Day Collections by openings starting in 2004 and working my way through the years. Just started the fourth year. Check POTD by Openings you play by searching on POTD and the Opening's Name. Ie POTD Sicilian Defense. Game Collection: POTD Sicilian Update: just broke into this decade 2010....

  TheFocus: <takchess> If you look at <Phony Benoni>'s Game Collections, you will see that he has already done collections for POTD.

  takchess: Hi The Focus. Yes I am working from the Stellar work of Phony B to create a number of POTD collections by Opening. This is a wrinkle off of what Phony has done where it is categorized by Days of the Week and Year(s) . This way I and others could concentrate on POTD of Openings that we play. Cheers, Jim
