  1. Haha, I am coming here after playing Jessica Lauser in tournament. I did win that game but I spent 7 of my 60 minutes thinking about what to play after 2.d5!

  2. Well look at that, this St. Louis finally makes an interesting thumbnail.

  3. If you are not O.C. into Chess, does the Elephant Gambit really make a whole hill of beans? And do you need a Ouija Board to enable you to pick the brain of your opponent??? Would the Narwall Gambit fit in this what ever you call it, or would the Black Mamba be more advantageous?? Just curious!

  4. Nice to see some gambits, a Wing gambit next time?
