Mark Hebden has punted the QP countergambit against Gawain. Not even the 3..Bd6 Elephant but the old fashioned 3...e4.

Re: (Chess) Life Returning To Normal

Nick, no worries. Let's hope we can all play chess at some point this year. You and yours stay safe as well - as, hopefully, will all on the Forum. No matter how annoying you all are at times!

Re: Closing Gambit

Thank you, David. I wasn't paying proper attention to the thread - not the first time that's happened.

An exhortation rather than an instruction surely?
Why use capital letters, then. To me that rather shouts instruction :)

Re: Closing Gambit

What was mysterious about Fischer's death? I though he died of kidney failure after many years of refusing to have a urinary tract problem properly treated.
