    I very much wait for a thematic tournament to start. It was a while ago wasn't it.
    I'd suggesting one on marshall attack.


    (It might be the funnest and most aggressive gambit in chess?)
    What do you think!?🙂

    Make your homework:
    Tabia -chess term meaning, a position from a well known chess opening were the play begin (not read chess theory hm?). Check the words before you start criticise others.😛

    No I am not. You guys are reading too few chess magazines.
    (Seen it in NIC-magazine a couple of times).
    Anyway the thread is not about this but about whether or not you want a new thematic tournament (Ruy lopez or Sicilian).

    Tabia or Tabiya: (from Arabic)
    1) The initial position of the pieces in Shatranj.
    2) The final position of a well-known chess opening.
    3) (from 2) The opening position from which two players familiar with each others' tastes begin play.

    How about a Fried Liver Attack Thematic, with 256 entrants. People have been wanting a big one, and in the Chess forum they've shown some interest in it.

    A fun, aggressive white tactic. Black gets material adv. white gets position. A good learning experience.

    I'd rather like a ruy... (if you insist in starting with the italian then evans gambit is the only choice.)
