Hi, I work for a laboratory with the job title: 'Technical Colour manager'. Basically I work on computer programs which deal with the science and mathematics of colour.


As well as chess my interests include:


·         Art (surrealism).

·         Acoustic Guitar (Early acoustic Blues and Ragtime). see me on YouTube

·         Computer programming.

·         Mathematics.

·         Science Fiction.


I am currently trying to create three opening repertoires for myself. I am currently contemplating the following ideas:


Repertoire One: Standard repertoire:


As White I might play The London system

Against the French: 1.e4 e6 2.d4 e5

Against the Sicilian I will stick with my unorthodox repertoire.


As Black I thinking The Scandinavian. 1.e4 d5 3.exd5 Nf6

Against 1.d4 I'm still thinking about that.


Repertoire Two: Gambit repertoire:


As White: 1.e4 e5 2.d4 exd4 3.Bc4

          1.e4 c5 2.b4 Sicilian Wing Gambit.

          1.e4 d5 2.Nf3 Tennison Gambit


As Black: 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 (same as standard repertoire).

          1.d4 e5 3.dxe5 d6 Blackburne-Hartlaub Gambit.


Repertoire Three: Unorthodox repertoire:


As White: 1.a3 e5 2.d4 (reversed Scandinavian).

          1.a3 d5 2.e4 (reversed version of Gambit repertoire).

          1.e4 g6 2.h4

          1.e4 c5 2.a4 (and 2.Na3)


As Black: 1.e4 d5 2.exd5 Nf6 (same as standard repertoire).

          1.d4 e5 3.dxe5 d6 (Same as Gambit repertoire).


Obviously creating a repertoire is a lot of work, a lifetimes work, but it has to be done.
