    Hi

    One the Blogs I really enjoyed doing.
    I would not do them if I was not enjoying it but this was a joy.

    No blast at you Skeets but 1.e4 games v 1.c4 and it's 1.e4 all the way.

    One of the treats awating you is Pawn Riot getting Royal Knight.'



    Hi P.R. what did you have up your sleeve here. White to play.


    See blog for a discussion of this position.

    I can see all kinds of tricks after Nf3, want to see what you had in mind.

    Super games PR. Thank You.

    Thanks PR.

    You will have to learn how to post with diagrams and PGN's.

    It's an interesting position.


    Was looking at this line years ago and remembered Black can hang on
    after Nf3-e5. Was wondering if you had a new trick in the postion.

    Cannot see an unbooked player finding 12...Qe1 first time out OTB.
    Indeed the evidence is there to show many have failed.

    But it's still a gamble.

    Good, I like the hear rattle on the bones in a game of chess.
    I often roll them myself. Will it be a double 6 or 'snake eyes.'?

    That combo I missed V Charlie Taylor was played in 1977.
    (originally I had 2007, I've just corrected it)

    I did something clever with my DB ages ago and now it says
    all my games were played 2007. (what a year that was!)
