  TheFocus: Opponent's name is Nicholas.
Dec-25-12  tjipa: No, TheFocus, the first name Nikolajs is right - that being the Latvian spelling of this ancient Greek name and Kampars being Latvian, originally. Nicholas is the same name (of the same old Santa [Ni]Claus, actually), in the same manner as John, Janis, Johann, Jean, Jan, Ian, Giovanni, Juan etc. - come from the same old Jewish root, the good old St. John.

  TheFocus: Thanks <tjipa>. When I made that post, there was only an initial N.

  Joshka: Amazing how, in the span of 28 moves, Kampars moved his queen knight 12 times!! Moves 6- 33.

  Phony Benoni: <Joshka> Perhaps not quite as inefficient, but this game has its own charms:

J M Hodgson vs D Gluckman, 1992

Black's g8-knight moves nine times in the first 14 moves.

Not that overuse is always bad. I once managed to win a game with Black where my first eight moves consisted of seven moves by the g8-knight and ...g5!

<1.d4 Nf6 2.Bg5>

(Attempting to take Black's KN with his QB.)

<2...Ne4 3.Bf4 g5 4.Nd2 Nxf2 5.Bxc7>

(Oh, come on. Desperados are knight business, and bishops should stay out of it.)

<5...Nxd1 6.Bxd8 Ne3 7.Kf2 Nxf1 8.Ba5 Nxd2 9.Bxd2>

A moral victory: the QB captures the KN! However, that's not worth a piece and I won easily.

  sbevan: In this game Kamsky moves his King N 8 times in the first 20 moves.

  Gilmoy: <Phoni Benoni> "The situation is now (d), a capture-chain." (from Beliavsky vs P Popovic, 1982, kibitz #48)

Emerging with <more loot> feels like Christmas!

May-28-18  jabinjikanza: Kampar played a exchange variation through out .very claver indeed .
