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 limit my playing online too addicting. My wife says I can play all the chess I want once I retire.......

   Jul-04-22 B Mikyska vs Traxler, 1896
takchess: Notes on the traxler. The first 9 moves are pretty much book 10 Nd7 to block is this better than Bd7 ? after 12 Qh4+ understand the line if 13 g3. Study why 17... Bxh3 works.
   Jul-03-22 J Reinisch vs Traxler, 1890
takchess: Notes on the traxler 7...b5 is worth a queen ? a position to study. 8...Ne4 is worth giving up the queen due to the mating combinations beginning with 9... would be cool to learn. In fact this whole game is worth memorizing.

takchess: This is the only way I can solve a Sunday puzzle.....
   Mar-13-22 S Morrison vs T K Hemingway, 1952

   Jan-05-22 D Palo vs P H Nielsen, 2003 (replies)
takchess: I would like to see this as thump, thump, thump problem solved but I do not. took a few seconds to see the first move but not how the continuation moves to a quick mate. Work to be done.....

takchess: ditto with Diademas.
   Jan-02-22 J Becerra Rivero vs J Sarkar, 2007 (replies)
takchess: 29 points to the King once the rook joins the attack . Something is going to happen. Aagard takes 2 pages to describe from this point. The Attacking manuals have years and years of these sort of things for me to study.
