    Two of the questions on today's show were: 1) Give us an example of how you evalute a position, and 2) What do you think about the line 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nd2 b6 (a fairly rare variation of the French Defense, Tarrasch Variation)? I did not have... | Read More

  • Mission: Checkmate! the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit

    • Blackmar-Diemer Gambit: Lamb Defense

      The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.e4, usually followed by 2. ..dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf3 4.f3) is one of my favourite openings. White gambits a central pawn in move 2, in return for quick piece development and active play. The “BDG” has a lot of vari... | Read More
