Suggestion for thematic tourny
I am interested in the Cochran Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Sf3 Sf6 3.Sxe5 d6 4.Sxf7)
and would be happy if we could play a thematic tourny with this opening - some day.
All the best,
Thibault de Vassal (2009-06-21 23:02:23)
It is now planned to be the 86th thematic tourney !
By the way it has been played before, see :
Daniel Parmet (2009-06-22 03:12:33)
Excellent idea Michael!
Normajean Yates (2009-06-22 16:12:42)
looking forward to it...
looking forward to it... but I'll move in that after wimbledon is over! (hopefully it will start after wimbledon, since the waiting list is not yet in place...)

Future thematic tournaments
Thanks everyone for your nice suggestions, so we'll have :

Sicilian Dragon, 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 g6 :
Daniel Parmet (2009-06-24 21:53:18)
I'm down for 86 and 88!!
I would also suggest Alekhine's and Benko for future ones
Rodolfo d Ettorre (2009-06-25 04:38:46)
Also if it is possible I would like the Ponziani and the 4 horses
Normajean Yates (2009-06-25 06:01:09)
After KG thematics (#81-83) there was supposed to be benko gambit thematic, no?
#89 - benko gambit: I second Daniel's proposal (actually the original Banko suggestion was made by someone between 20-24 May I think.. if it was not Daniel then I am the third person to request Benko.)

About thematic Volga
We had recently one: FICGS__CHESS__THEMATIC_TOURNAMENT__000059
Normajean Yates (2009-06-25 21:39:33)
Oh ! Thanks!
Thanks for pointing it out, Mr/Ms Russi Román!
I should have just search for benko/volga games (in the standard move-order) to check if a benko thematic has been held... Thematics #3, #58 and #59 were benko (volga) gambit thematics.
Daniel Parmet (2009-06-25 22:51:01)
can always have more!
always time for another one after all there has been many KG ones!
Thibault de Vassal (2009-06-26 03:19:32)
Benko, Ponziani and so on...
Okay, we'll have all these ones soon !
Yugi Inving (2009-06-26 18:11:07)
What about the leningrad Dutch ?
Wilhelm Schuett (2009-06-27 19:45:23)
1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Ba5 is a good idea. I never played it before. Even with the white pieces. But White has to be prepared.
Sophie Leclerc (2009-06-30 06:07:16)
Is the Budapest gambit a good choice, or is it a choice that refute white as Yugi would say ?
Rodolfo d Ettorre (2009-06-30 13:09:01)
The Bucharest gambit?
Good idea, I think
