Herrstroem gambit, 1.Nf3 g5
What do you think about this gambit (new thematic tournament) ? .. Very critical. Is it lost for Black already ?

What about Dory defense?
1. d4 Nf6, 2. c4 e6, 3. Nf3 Ne4
or (in italian language) Attacco Aculeo?
1. g4 d5, 2. Bg2 c6; 3 g5 (I don't know if Black can make the first move in thematic tournament)

Strange openings :) .. Why should Black play first !?

Re: Re: Suggestion
Becuose same gambits or critical openings start whit a white move,
i.e. King gambit: 1.e4 e5 2.f4
and now black can play 2. ... exf4 or 2. ... d6 or 2. ... Nc6 ecc. ecc.
I think that in certain thematic tournament whit opening like this 1st move would be made by black...
but i don't know how thematic tournaments work... :)

If you are ever short of ideas for thematic tourney's check out the openings of Mike Surtees...always interesting!?
Thibault de Vassal (2007-05-10 03:21:12)
Nicola, there's no rule for thematic tournaments.. every mad opening is welcome :)
Nick, what are these famous openings played by Mike Surtees !?

He is a player from my home town rated about 2200. He plays many weird and wonderful openings that he's worked out himself (eg French 4 pawn gambit!?) should be some games on Chessbase...
