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.

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.

My playing strength is on the left side of the bell curve of members of Had an 8 year break and just picking up chess again. I currently don't allow myself to play online too addicting. My wife says I can play all the chess I want once I retire.......

takchess: Hi NYAGM, I am interested in what you coined the Averbakh rule. Is this based on an Averbakh statement and where did he state it ? I saw the Shirov game in the collection . I have recently discovered this game of Shirov. Shirov vs O Nikolenko, 1991 Cheers, Jim
