I enjoyed your Elephant Gambit collection and started to play it a little online. I think you would like this game on my Fritz DB but not here in CG. A wild sac without immediate return.

  whiteshark: <takchess> Thanks for your feedback on Game Collection: 98_C40_Elephant Gambit , but it leaves me a bit confused coz the game you've posted opened with as Urusov-Gambit. Game Collection: 98_C24 Urusov-Gambit

He who wants to educate himself in Chess must evade what is dead in Chess...the habit of playing with inferior opponents; the custom of avoiding difficult tasks; the weakness of uncritically taking over variations or rules discovered by others; the vanity which is self-sufficient; the incapacity for admitting mistakes; in brief, everything that leads to standstill or to anarchy.

-- Emanuel Lasker

Somehow I've been a bit tired and unimaginative lately. Now, while my premium will expire in the next 24 hours, I'll take that again as an opportunity to break for an indefinite period of time.

  tpstar: <whiteshark> Thank you very much for including my game in Game Collection: 97d_French Disasters -Teh Dark Side of Chess

Check this out = Saemisch vs Mieses, 1925

Keep teh faith. ;>D

  whiteshark: Thanks for dropping by, <Tony>.

Aside of T Palmer vs W Surlow, 1998 I also integrated T Palmer vs K Noren, 1990 into a.m. collection. ;)

It often happened that these French miniatures also ended up in Game Collection: zz29_1838 (Ra8+Bc8 untouched) (this collection is relatively young - but I like the related pattern).


Well, this forum will automatically shut down tomorrow...
