How Does An Opening Get Officially Reconized?

    Hello everyone, I created an opening gambit a while back. I think it just borders on respectability, but can be used as a good surprise weapon. My question isn't about the soundness, as many much worse openings have names, but I'm curious how does an opening get officially reconized, added to the ECO, and everything?

    This gambit has never been played in the chess.com database.

    NOTE TO EVERYONE WHO SEES THIS POST... THIS THREAD IS NOT ABOUT DEBATING THE OPENING IN QUESTION, IT'S ABOUT OPENING RECONITION

    Regretfully must point out CS007 that you are very unlikely to get anywhere with this campaign unless you learn how to spell recognised correctly ?

    I'm not sure how it works... do you want it officially recognized? Ask staff how... they may be able to help.

    lol I think I will stick with my favorite opening, the KG

    but I tend to play a classical dutch with an early Na6 intending c5 dxc5, Nxc5 gaining a superior position for my kinigit

    however I normaly have to place it on c7 to do any dammage

    An opening is sometimes named for the first to play it, but more often for the first prominent master to play it successfully.  At least as often, the names are taken from the first master tournament where it is played, like the Cambridge Springs or Leningrad or Archangelsk, or by some other description - King's Indian, Fried Liver, Two Knights, Giuoco Piano (Quiet Game in Italian).

    Naming of opening lines is by convention.  There is no FIDE or Chessbase or any other body which votes or researches or suggests names.  The names just come about.  Most often, if a player gets an opening named after him, it is because he brought it to prominence and is identified with it.

    For a counter-gambit in a line that is fairly rarely played already, your best bet is correspondence chess (which is mainly by email nowadays) because correspondence players are far more likely to play into such lines, so you will have more chances to win with your idea.  Many weird lines get named by the correspondence players who played them regularly first.

    My database has 6 games with 3.c3. Interestingly, three of them are played by the same player-Theresa Kalliwoda, a young german player, who was white each time. They're not very high-quality games, but here's one with 3...d5.

    Win with the opening a few times at tournaments where your games will get onto peoples' databases, that might help a bit with recognition.

    It's really too bad you can't get an opening named just buy discovering it and submitting a form or something. I'd write a perl script to just submit every possible opening line 24/7 and every new line people play would turn up as something like the pellik 389845 variation.

    there is a 5 minute blitz game with the opening, Stockfish defeated the great houdini as white. I cant figure out how to get the PGN from arena in a format where I can put it on chess.com though
