Addicted to chess and old enough to know better. Still thinks the Vienna Gambit is sound. Digs Lichess and the cheeses of the world. Born in Chester, Cheshire, England, and for many years now, a New Zealander. Trying to learn the correct move order in the London System.

"Since my house burned down

mckmac: <Cheapo by the Dozen:Timman did OK at age 17...> White was no more than a year older. Good game. The early 3.Nc3 looks weird to me, but there seems to be a plan behind it. Top-shelf pun.
