Right now, having taken over Club 236
, I find that I can only run thematic tourneys involving positions in the RHP opening book. This is a needless limitation!
Example: Scotch, Goering Gambit - 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. c3 and the only two further options are A)
Sea Cadet Mate: ... dxc3 5. Nxc3 d6 6. Bc4 Bg4 7. O-O Ne5 8. Nxe5 Bxd1 9. Bxf7+ Ke7 10. Nd5# and B)
... dxc3 5. Nxc3 Bb4. So, if I want to give my club members a shot at a line like 5.Bc4?!? - that option is closed to me!
There's no reason it should be.
C'mon Russ--give us club tourneys that start from any legal position!
