the eel
Member since Dec-27-05 · Last seen Apr-16-21
I live in Birmingham England and have a BCF rating of 179. I like playing off-beat opening lines such as Sokolsky as white and Nimzowitsch Defence as black.

the eel: Thanks Keiser, when OTB chess restarts I will include the Halloween in my repertoire. I notice that you always open with 1 Nc6, my favourite opening move but with black!
   Jun-09-20 Jekabs Laipenieks vs H Kalnins, 1929
the eel: I have had terrific fun with 4 -- d5 in this variation, the Svedenborg. 5 Qh5ch g6 6 Nxg6 hxg6 7 Qxh8 Kf7 is my favourite.
   Sep-01-12 King's Knight Opening (C40) (replies)
the eel: I gave up the Latvian Gambit 10 years ago after finding no good answer to 3 Nxe5. Recently I have been experimenting on-line with 3-- Nf6 with good results ( one defeat in 10). Black gets a lasting initative,for a pawn sac, in most games.I am considering using the line OTB. I am ...
   Aug-25-12 Szigethy vs L Deak, 1988 (replies)
the eel: Thats a nice trap, easy to fall into if you are not alert. After 10 gxf3 the position offers black compensation for the pawn.Does anyone know how strong szigethy is/was?
   May-20-12 Uncommon King's Pawn Opening (B00) (replies)
the eel: I'm not saying that 4 Bd3 is a strong move just that the reply Nxd4 is an alternative to g6 a fact which is not mentioned in my books. You are right though Parisattack most games I have played go 3 PxP and not e5 unfortunately.
   Mar-10-12 S Kristjansson vs G Jones, 2012 (replies)
the eel: Why did white resign? He his not losing this position, is he?
   Mar-03-12 Alekhine vs Flohr, 1932
the eel: The d pawn is poisoned ( 18 Bxd4?). Best seems to be 18 - Rb8 but white is still on top after 19 g3 fxg 20 hxg.A good example of the latent power of the Colle system.
   Dec-30-11 Skembris vs S Mariotti, 1981 (replies)
the eel: In this line 2 Bg2 is a mistake, white should play 2 d3 to answer h5 with g5.
   Dec-28-11 M Basman vs Keene, 1981 (replies)
the eel: I feel 4 d3 followed by Nf3 is a better system for white. He can castle and play c4 but the black squares on the kingside are a problem, especially the f4 square.
   Dec-23-11 Bacrot vs Thierry Audin, 2011
the eel: I presume black lost on time.
