Marc Lacrosse memorial

Dear chessfriends, the waiting list for the next chess thematic tournament is open, this thematic #100 will be named the Marc Lacrosse memorial in honor of our lost chessfriend, we will play one of his favorite openings, the Basman Sale sicilian : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Bc5

Best wishes,
Thibault

Opening theory

I remember Marc publishing some material about this opening on his website. Unfortunately it seems like the material was not transferred when his website moved. He had accumulated a lot of knowledge on this opening and it would be a shame to lose all his work on it - I don't suppose anyone knows if the material is available anywhere do they?

Actually it may be possible to find the old website on the "wayback machine" http://www.archive.org , I'll have a look on this.


William Taylor    (2009-12-05 21:48:19)
Great

Thanks Thib - it is possible to find it through this site. I haven't investigated it fully yet to see if all his analysis can be seen, but some certainly can.

BasmanSale defence . ..

I downloaded long time ago from that website most of the zip files and the reports in pdf. These are:

BasmanSale-extended-05.2007.zip
BasmanSale-pure-05.2007.zip
Basman-Sale-reports-052007.zip

I could send the to anyone or put them in any repository .....

Great, I may host it here at FICGS, why not...

Chessbazaar

Hi William, did you find something on Chessbazaar at Archive.org ? Looks like the archived pages are empty.. strange.

Looks like there are several Chessbazaars on the internet :) .. I just re-discovered this one thanks to a referral:

Marcs notes

Thibault,

Presumably if these notes do come to light you will put them where all of the participants in Thematic 100 (and any subsequent sections) can see them.

Perhaps if they form the basis for a monograph, somebody might be prepared to edit it.

Thib

Try putting this into archive.org - http://users.skynet.be/mlcc/chessbazaar/basmansale/index.html
That should get the article up.

William

I already tried that and got the response "The page you are looking for could not be found" Do you know something that gets past that?


William Taylor    (2009-12-09 09:55:08)
Philip

If I try to click that link on the chessbazaar homepage (got to via archive.org), I get an error message. However, if I paste the url of the link directly into the box on the homepage of archive.org then I get there eventually, though it takes a loong time to load. Can you get to the chessbazaar homepage ok through archive.org?


Philip Roe    (2009-12-09 21:59:40)

Using that trick I can get either to the chessbazaar homepage or to the Basman-Sale index. After that I get stuck because none of the links seem to go anywhere. Im not a very sophisticated web searcher!


William Taylor    (2009-12-10 00:19:47)
Hmm

It may be that the Basman-Sale index is the only bit you can get too. Not having success at the moment at finding the pages linked to from there.


Philip Roe    (2009-12-10 04:14:35)
Rodolfo

So although you say that you downloaded Marcs notes some time ago, you may have the latest version in existence. Perhaps you could forward it to Thibault and he can create a space for it.

It looks as if Marc put substantial effort into collecting it, and did intend some form of publication.


William Taylor    (2010-01-04 18:35:41)
Rodolfo

I haven't managed to get hold of anything other than the Basman-Sale index page, so I second Philip's request for you to make the files you downloaded generally available somehow. Perhaps Thib could host them - or if not then maybe you could upload them to some site like rapidshare?


Rodolfo d Ettorre    (2010-01-05 09:40:32)
Marc Lacrosse memorial

Hi every buddy, I placed the files somewhere in this site:

http://rodolfo_3.tripod.com/

Maybe later I will put them in something like rapidshare.

Great, thanks, Rodolfo.

Marc Lacrosse on Basman Sale defence

Thanks a lot Rodolfo! I've uploaded it at FICGS here :

Marc Lacrosse memorial

Thank you, Rodolfo!

Marc did indeed put enormous effort into this labor of love. I do wonder what his plans were.

I see that there are a lot of ICC games which were presumably speed games of some sort, and perhaps need to be taken with a grain of salt. Anyhow, it doesn't seem that I have made any blunders yet.
