    ...to play a few albin counter gambit games with me.
    Me as black, 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e5 3. dxe5 d4

    The normal continuation thereafter is 4. Nf3 Nc6 5.g3, but I'm finding 5.a3! very difficult to break down and I can't find much information on it. :-/

    I've been studying/playing the albin for about 3 months now with fair success but need to play one or two higher rated players with whatever variation they like. Chances are I'll be beaten quickly because it's CC, but I believe the Albin is a powerful OTB tool, and what to see the worst case scenarios I could run into and do some serious analysis on the games afterwards.

    Cheers lads,

    i've been playing the albin for a while, with successes usually against 1500ish players but not higher.. please send me over a couple of challenges, black and white, in a week's time if you'd like. i think a wee themed tourney would be good also, if anyone was interested?

    Mathurine, why don't you buy a sub? You're too good to be a non-sub.

    Too good? Too good at what?? Chess???

    I am, in fact, a very bad girl indeed. If my husband would pay for a star, I'd already have one. He won't, the mean bas***d, as he resents the time I spend online trying to defeat all you lot.

    Should I, peradventure, go on the game or something??

    Yours, aching with desire...

    You have a husband, but you don't have a sub? You aren't doing your job. Women always have ways of convincing men to buy them stuff....it should be easy.
