    97426 & 97427 won by gbgnils. Yep, my aggressiveness got the best
    of me. Having played the others in the 1400 goup, I predict Nils will
    prevail. Good luck all.

    Not at all...I already went through both of yours...that h pawn opening
    is a little weird but it worked.

    Just try that one on me..hehehe

    Well I play it in blitz, it's called the Kadas opening. Obviously white
    says- I can beat you with anything, even with this funky style.
    Although the opening has a lot more to come with against unprepared
    opponents f.e

    1. h4 d5
    2. h5 e5?! (I prefer h6)
    3. h6 Nxh6? (a usual mistake but a few programs recommend it, not
    fritz of course)
    4. d4! exd4 !?
    5. Bxh6 gxh6
    6. Qxd4 Qg5 (with equal position- Rg8 is playable)

    In this case my opponent choose another defending style- the clear
    and more worse gxh6- now castling kingside is as good as impossible.
    He also decided to try to keep the worthless h-pawn which is
    interesting.

    Ever tried to play against the halloween gambit in four knights.LOL I
    advice you to prepare- but maybe you just play sicilian- poisoned
    pawn anytime...


    Regards, Nils.

    Have had the halloween put on me a few times in speed...no biggee.

    Most people know what I play...hell the nick gives it away right off the
    bat...but the PCG is my baby.

    I play that stuff alot against people here...against you...yeah
    sicillian...I am a tough nut to crack when I play my Najdorf.

    We shall see who ends up in the final...I might make it to the second
    round...but I have alot of tough comp...and so do you!

    Good Luck.

    Any more opening stuff we can discuss it in the "Theory Forum" if you
    like.

    people........doesn't really get anywhere with it! USCF around 1750

    tactics and uses them ALOT(!!) ! USCF around 2250 (so I hear!) Let's
    face it.........you could play that h4 h5 h6 stuff that gbgnils has going
    on and beat me! Cocky S.O.B.! Hehehe..........just kidding Dave!

    The king's gambit is ridiculous and you will loose if you try that on me.
    I have hoped for a refutation but it han't come yet. I will take that
    pawn and I will keep it and promote it. I take it you play the Muzio?

    Wow......that was kind of rude.......of course there isn't a refutation to
    the KG......It's a sound gambit........You tell Boris Spassky that the KG
    was sound and he would smash you down. And you would smash me
    down, because your rating and talent is higher than mine! Your
    Halloween Attack is also ridiculous and would loose to anyone your
    rating, and that's the same for your little h-pawn attack......plz I don't
    want to argue about this......Why would you just come out with this
    cocky attitude for no reason?

    Just messing with your opening choice, no offense. This is the second
    player I have upset here, I will really try not to let my confidence shine
    through so much. Sorry again.

    Actually I have worked very hard on the KG- I have played very many
    games with it and it is the opening where I have scored most wins with.

    However something in my nature tell me that it is wrong, that being
    one pawn up is sufficient. I also do not like openings with tactical
    nature. Surely the KG is great for blitz games and for amateur games
    and yes, some masters today play it with success. White gets an
    awesome initiative- that's for sure.

    When it comes to Kadas and Halloween gambit- I never stated these
    to be correct- but, like the king's gambit- they are awesome blitz
    weapons.

    Anyway- my defence do not let you play the KG anyway 😉.
