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.......

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.

takchess: As the author , I agree it is a rather poor pun. I thought the game had a lot going on and appropriate for a game of the day given the crazy amounts of Sacks ending in a pawn promotion. I just couldn't come up with a better pun . A pun perhaps more suitable for a Sax game . As my ...
