    Hardly Gunner's fault. He would have played 3.Bxf6, rather than set up a Stonewall after his good B was exhanged.

    Pretty good game on your part. You were better even before he allowed his Q to be trapped.

    That's not a Tromp! That's a disgrace! What the heck was the opponent's plan behind opening his own castled k-side, while locking up (his opponent's ) castled q-side?

    And as for leaving d-square bishop on the board - he's a rank amateur (with a good rating)

    Well played Cam.

    Remember that it was a simulation and I have a low rating, so he wouldn't have taken me seriously.

    He probably only had 20 seconds per move in reality. As you can see, I took my time to find the best lines. Admittedly, an IM should have drawn from move 22 against me.

    1. d4 d5 2. Bg5 Nf6 3. Bxf6 exf6 makes it hard for the higher rated player to win.

    I'd back a much higher player to win from either colour. Give a player a safe position with plenty of pieces, and he'll find a way to outplay someone a few hundred points below him.

    I think often the lower rated player finds a way to lose it (rather than the higher rated player needing to win it, as such).

    Couldn't this be said of most rating mismatches though?

    Yes. It was a comment on your comment.

    Wow that's crazy. I think you'd need an Aaron or a mac or a Jono to annotate that. Thanks for posting.

    I would like to know if any 2000+ players (or close) give the The Trompowsky a run around the block under tournament conditions. If so, and you have had a reasonable game with it, I'd appreciate an email with that game. Or post it here if you prefer. Perhaps you had a great position and failed to convert (tell me about it!!, sheez).

    I appreciate this has been a much maligned opening in years gone by but is resurrected from time to time - twice significantly in the last 30 years. Of course the Poms about 10 years ago had some reasonable success.

    The traditionalists at the Brisbane Chess Club aren't keen (although their respect for it is growing), but Jacob Edwards and a few other non traditional types always enjoy themselves when it is wheeled out.

    I seldom play anything else (although I am certain my rating would improve if I did!). I would appreciate any intelligent discussion on The Tromp.

    I believe it was first used on this board two Xmas's ago by the said Duggan but was exorcised by the A/C, A/C 1 - Duggan 0. (not rubbing it in or anything)

    Thanks Vlad. Julian Hodgson, eat your heart out! This is exactly the stupefying obliteration that can occur when the white pieces are in the right hands and the white player is in the mood.

    What follows is commentary from Super GMPatzer:
    I believe 5 Bh6 is black's best continuation in this line.

    I think you are going to have to go further than that if you want to convince people that White is so bad in this position. White has a big centre, open f-file, can quickly finish development, and black's forward h-pawn is weak.
