I prefer black but I will take what I can get. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Nf6 4.Ng5 Bc5

Next thematic tournament
We need five more players to start the next thematic chess tournament, then we could organize a few ones on Traxler again !
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-11-24 07:00:38)
I'm in!! I'm in!! Can I play with white only? :P :P
Rodolfo d Ettorre (2007-11-24 12:07:32)
I have an idea, can Mr. Cirulis play only with black?
Thibault de Vassal (2007-11-24 16:13:26)
Ilmars tries to prove that Traxler counter-attack is dead for Black... Anyway the only to play White only is thematic silver games :)
Graham, did you have a look at Ilmars analysis in Wikichess ? See http://www.ficgs.com/user_page.php?page=wikichess&article=611
You can analyze some lines with other players...
Graham McGrew (2007-11-26 22:33:50)
Thanks for this wealth of responses, all. Thanks too for the tip on Ilmars' analysis. I will check it out. Thibault, what is the next thematic tournament for which you need five more players? Ilmars, I would love to play a game with you as white, me as black. Being new to FICGS, I'm not exactly sure how to start a game with you . . . ?
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-11-26 22:40:10)
We can play bronze lightning.
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-11-26 22:56:12)
About analysis - don't take Thibault serious about it. :)
It's not analysis, just few lines.
Ilmars Cirulis (2007-11-26 23:04:26)
I see - you don't have enough time today. Or something else.
Post time, when you can play. I hope we will find best for both time.
Thibault de Vassal (2007-11-26 23:36:46)
The next thematic tournament is a very interesting line of the Sicilian poisoned pawn variation : 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Nf6 5.Nc3 a6 6.Bg5 e6 7.f4 Qb6 8.Qd2 Qxb2 9.Rb1 Qa3 10.e5
See in Waiting list >> Special chess tournaments
If you want to play a "one-game" match with Ilmars, you may try in Advanced chess tournaments >> Bronze lightning .. and play Traxler, if you don't care about your blitz chess rating :) .. or Thematic lightning but with entry fee & prize (10 E-Points) & White must win rule.

I take both colour on this oppening, just can i understand why you guys do Fxf2. now i know that this bishop is poisoned ( i am tired of losing agaisn't rybka for this reason.) and does letting my enemy do their 0-0 or 0-0-0 is bad
