  STYNTZ: another DANISH GAMBIT. it is amazing how many times black gets destroyed with it. maybe it should have its own opening code to distinguish from center game propper.
Aug-03-03  jmcd2002: I've often wondered why some gambits don't have ECOs: the Danish, the Latvian, the Wilkes-Barre/Traxler, etc. They certainly lead to distinct sorts of games. Can anyone tell me the reason?
Aug-03-03  refutor: popularity at grandmaster level...if the danish/latvia/wilkes-barre were played semi-regularly they would get their own code. since they're mainly played among correspondence masters and amateurs, they don't get their own ECO code ;)
