"Many sacrifices don't require concrete calculation at all. It is sufficient to only glance at the arising position to convince us the sacrifice is correct."

"Chess, first of all, is art."

"Play the opening like a book, the middle game like a magician, and the endgame like a machine."

"A good sacrifice is one that is not necessarily sound but leaves your opponent feeling dazed and confused."

TheKid: 18.Nxh7 looks interesting.

TheKid: What do you, personally, use more: the Bishop's Gambit or the King's Knight? Or which would you recommend?
   Nov-20-06 King's Gambit Accepted (C33) (replies)
TheKid: Good post ongyj. I have been wondering whether to play 3.Nf3 or 3.Bc4. I'd like to buy the Fascinating King's Gambit, but if I dislike the Bishop's Gambit the book wouldn't be of much use. Any others have thoughts on the type of positions 3.Bc4 offers? Is it really more tactical, ...

TheKid: 15.Qe4 against Madhair, looks like 15...Nd4 wins.
   Oct-01-06 Queen's Gambit Declined, Tartakower (Makagonov-Bondarevsky) Syst (D58) (replies)
TheKid: Why does this opening draw so much at top level? It was created by Tartakower!!
   Sep-28-06 Janowski vs Tartakower, 1926
TheKid: After 20...Qa1+ Black would mate or win material, while castling looks like it allows Black to exchange into a better endgame after 20...Bxe4.

TheKid: If you want something untheoretical and in your style, check out the Cambridge Springs Defense. That's not seen much anymore.
   Sep-18-06 D Schockenbaeumer vs S Arndt, 1989
TheKid: Sock 'em Boppers! (More fun than a pillow fight!) Cool game, by the way. 12.Nxe6 fxe6 13.Rxe6 Qh4 looks good for Black
   Sep-18-06 K Grigorian vs Dzindzichashvili, 1969 (replies)
TheKid: And why do people not play this these days?
   Sep-18-06 Ruy Lopez, Classical (C64) (replies)
TheKid: Interesting point. The lure of fashion snares everyone it seems.
