Surprised white would agree to a draw in this position. Maybe his boss/wife was coming and he wanted to finish the game? :lol:

is there perhaps just a tinge of experience behind this post? :)

It was a correspondence game played on a web server and white took several weeks before accepting the draw offer.


I have some more games to show. However I caught three players with the same improvement over book in the same tournament. I will not release the games until they are all finished.

Can someone tell me whether the following line is sound? Or where the line is refuted?

1.e4 e5 2.f4 d6 3.Nf3 Nc6 4.Bc4 Be6 5.Bxe6 fxe6 6.fxe5 dxe5 7.? This line seems a good line for black with the f and d files to operate on and a nice bishop potentially on c5.

I do not think there is an immediate refutation, not in the opening at least. The problem with this variation is that in the ending the doubled pawns will need constant protection. So they are just unnessary weaknesses.

1.e4 e5 2.f4 d6 3.Nf3? and now black should transpose to the Fischer variation with exf

Better is

1.e4 e5 2.f4 d6
3.Nc3

exf 4. Bc4 transposes to the Bishops gambit but one of the good lines for white.

Nc6 4 Bb5 is the way to play.

Where's Pat Byrom? :)

He is busy 'unrating' the QUGS tournaments which Garvin had submitted to be rated because he actually won a few games (although not against me).

I was quite indifferent to whether or not they got rated because I too went up a few hundred points.

But me casa, you casa. I guess I'll just trounce some other rapid chess victims.
