    Call this a trial balloon...

    Would folks be interest in, oh, say, a King's Gambit (Muzio variation) theme tournament sponsored by the Virgin Sacrifices?

    Prize would have to be something like a Tal book (perhaps Art of Attack)...

    the start position would probably not be the wildest ... probably just after the knight sac, not the bishop as well. I'm thinking the position after 1. e4 e5 2. f4 exf4 3. Nf3 g5 4. Bc4 g4 5. 0-0 gxf3 is a good starting spot, and if white wants to dump the bishop on f7 too, (s)he can feel more than free πŸ™‚

    However, I'm not ponying up for a prize unless there's more interest expressed here...

    I would be interested in both tourny and book,but when some 1800 or 2000 player will join my interest will decrease dramatically............
    Better if I'm going to buy that book!
