    I haven't posted any cheapo Tennison Gambit wins for a while.

    who?, when?, where?..................and why?

    I've played this OTB a few times but I throw in the move 2.a4.


    But only if I'm 99% sure I'll be seeing 1...d5 after 1.Nf3 because after 1.Nf3 Nf6...


    ...according to Rupert de Baur in 'Ist Goot Schach Spiel ' published by Flywheel, Shyster and Flywheel,
    White is in Zugzwang.

    I'm not familiar with that publication. I will in future insist that
    opponents do not reply Nf6.

    (Either that or continue with standard Reti development)
