I would propose to play Sicilian Dragon or so in memory of Robert Fischer.

Icelandic Gambit ...

i have an old opening book, semi open openings written by Ludek Pachman, and it does not mention the Icelandic Gambit, so there must be plenty of "unexplored country" in it, so ... I am in!!!

Can we one day have a Centre Opening thematic ? I used to play it very often when I was young, happy and unemployed.

Ok. :) havn't seen the Dragon has played before. Icelandic gambit do the topic in memory of RJF!
