    Dubbed the steinitz tromp
    And still, no one has satisfactorily proven, that it isn't opposite day.

    Nice effort from Cam DeVere with Tromp. He didn't win, but was marginally better art various stages against his much higher rated opponent (Gene Nakauchi). Is this your first public outing with The Tromp, Cam?

    Cam you asked (in the shoutbox) about this game and referred to continuations. I made some rude comments about posting it and hoping for real men Tromp players to comment, as others will simply say "... and white is bad".

    From my humble perspective, that Bf4 needs to be moved around move 6. or soon after. One may ask about moving a piece so much in the opening and my understanding is that:
    a) the position calls for it, and
    b) the Tromp itself is about both sides fiddling with the same bits more than is considered polite in the opening

    Finally, if you don't want to eschew opening theory and standard advice, don't play the Tromp. The Tromp is for mad bastards and various other descriptors.

    I'm not the biggest expert on the Tromp around, but 3...e6 looks a bit fishy: after 4. f3 Nf6 5. e4, I think White is doing extremely well. After 5...d5, 6. e5 is good, but after 5...Ng8, I think 6. Be3! is the right move there, and iseems like a French, 2 tempi up for white (discounting the f3 move, as it is un-important.) I just think White came up with a plan, that let Black get his tempi back, and Black quickly got a French paradise when the white-squared bishops went off.
    I'm guessing Black was a experience French player: he played the game very very well after move 6 or so, and...well, thats it

    My game probably isn't worth putting up, but if people insist, I will anyway

    I insist. Tromp's go in the tromp thread. It's only natural.

    [White "Morris, James"]
    [Black "Deen-Cowell, Nicholas"]
    [Result "1-0"]
    [ECO "A46"]
    [WhiteElo "2196"]
    [BlackElo "1622"]

    Don't let the rating gap fool you; NDC had a great tournament with a TPR of 1872.
