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.

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 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: A favorite of mine. I wish my French games as white ended like this ! Given that Shirov's has played wild lines likes the Muzio Gambit and Fried Liver, I wonder if we will ever see him play the Halloween Gambit or the black side of the Traxler......

takchess: 13 Rad1 is a beautiful move that passively sacs a bishop and starts the fireworks. Don't think I would of played that one as white. (need to remember this one)
