    How about this for a thematic tournament idea!!!

    We have had Dragon Thematics, Najdorf Thematics etc.

    So ~Tony!~ could be saying to me my Dragon is better than than your Dragon (Which I am sure it is) However.......

    How about a thematic with the moves

    1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 (Open Sicilian with 2...d6)

    Here I could reply your Dragon may be better than mine

    But my Najdorf is better than your Dragon etc.

    After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4

    This could lead to a:
    1) Najdorf
    2) Dragon
    3) Scheveningen
    4) Classical

    Also a Thematic after the moves

    1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 (Open Sicilian with 2...Nc6)

    This could lead to a:
    1) Taimanov
    2) Accelerated Dragon
    3) Sveshnikov
    4) Classical
    5) Kalashnikov
    6) 4 Knights Sicilian

    Sorry Kan players


    Do you think I should suggest this?

    Yeah I think this would be pretty cool. And by the way, my Dragon is definitely better than your Najdorf. I mean, come on. A Dragon is a Dragon, but a Najdorf is an old, slightly overweight Argentinian man. No contest.
