    Can we have a tournament with the Rice Gambit? Please?

    I've been studying it, and I'm sure I can surprise a few unsuspecting victims...😀

    This is a variation of the Kieseritsky Gambit, are you sure about 8. 0-0 , both M.C.O. and the Neil McDonald book give 8. d4 for white. I think that you'd have to make the cut off at move 5 or 6, any deeper and it's too obscure.

    That's true, but who ever said the thematic touneys have to be openings. I think it'd be quite cool if they were an interesting middle, or endgame.
