    There is a well-known opening trap in which Black plays 7....PxN=Nch!
    What is the name of this opening?
    Anyone who wants the white side let be know.

    Would that be the Albin counter gambit?
    I want to play the white side, if I can deviate from this variation (e.g.
    the 4th move). Let me know. Gil.

    I looked at your games.
    We can start from where you don't need your queen any more against
    Dr.Brain.

    that's a deep positional sacrifice. You will see the effect in twenty
    moves or so. Does that scare you off? Gil.

    If you are up to it i'll demonstrate,that that is not a winning move.
    Let me know.
    Key word:
    Bluffing.

    This is a joke indeed (sadly enough). But you are deviating from your
    own challenge. I thought you wanted to play Albin counter gambit with
    you black? Gil.

    No.
    I wanted to draw attention to myself,and i think(know) i done it.
    What i want is some good player to push me on.
    I am on the verge of 1400.
    I came to the conclusion that i need someone to knock the rough
    edges off me and turn me from "talented" to "force".

    Talent is inherit in the person. Those like me who don't have it totally
    have to work harder.

    You said for someone to take you from "talented" to "force"...I was
    just stating that talent in chess is something that is either there or it
    isn't....the ones that have it become GM's pretty quick...those who
    don't...such as myself...have to study twice as much and work alot
    harder.

    And where do you want to be taken? That sentence confused me.

    I can see you are interested.
    I am at a point where i will just level off.
    Unless some good player move me upward and onward.
    That player will be a talent spotter.
    Am i in the wrong forum?

    Chess theory is a better place than the puzzle forum that is for sure.

    I can answer any real chess questions you happen to have there. As
    well as others will hop in to I am sure

    Beating us lowly players into a pulp is one thing, but throwing away a queen and THEN
    beating us into a pulp is just showing off. Can't you see the psychological harm you've
    caused/are going to cause Dr. Brain?
