Welcome to my first blog post
In this blog I am going to cover some of the "off-beat" openings I use. Namely, the Ponziani, Budapest Gambit (with the Fajarowicz variation) and Scotch Gambit (which is a little more on-beat!)
My friend Chris will also be blogging on openings such as the Modern and Reti and I will be linking to his blogs, too.
I am a club player, playing for Worsley Chess Club, and have been playing since January 2007. You can find out more about me and my chess at www.mq1982.co.uk: the chess sections is under games.
I hope people enjoy the blogs I put up (there will be at least 1 per week) and join in by posting comments, corrections and suggestions.
