    I haven't seen many thematic tourneys in a while. My suggestions would be Morra Gambit and the Sicilian Wing Gambit. Any other suggestions??

    I don't know the names of different openings but I do enjoy banded thematic tournaments as it forces me to play an alternative game. I usually lose but still enjoy it!

    Thematic tourneys,because we play both sides,we can play openings we wouldn't want to play just one offs.For instance:The Cochrane Gambit of Petroff Defence where white plays 4 Nxf7 instead of dropping back to f3.I wouldn't play anything like this in one game,but playing both sides looks attractive.
