Albin theme match

Albin theme match

Jun 22, 2015, 2:40 PM 1

I can be persuaded to join big clubs (like, say, banks), but it's tough to get me to join a smaller sub-club (like, say, the bank's Christmas program). I joined chess.com years ago, but it took a long time to find a home within the home.

The Unsound Openers are my kind of people — they don't laugh at my 1. d4 Nf6 2. g4; the weirdos actually share an appreciation for it. My real-life friend Albert is in the group (we had the same strange old chess teacher, who says things like "I used to play like that!" when he sees 1. d4 Nf6 2. g4); he talked me into joining the thematic team match with Albin Countergambits. I don't like the Albin from either side, but what the hell; when you're in a club, do as the club members do.
