I am the co-creator of a new so-called-opening called the Flying Ninja Attack (:P). It goes 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 d6 5.Nf3 O-O 6.Be2 e5 7.O-O Nc6 8.d5 Ne7 9.b4 Nh5 10.Re1 Nf4 11.Bf1 a5 12.Ba3 axb4 13.Bxb4 f5 14.Nd2 g5 15.g3 Neg6. It is a Knight sac and somehow Black gets a huge attack. It hasn't been immediately refuted, as Fritz gives the starting position a 0.60 for White. The other creator (he's on this website) is birdsopening.







This is a puzzle I found on another site. If you need a hint look at the following text:


In this position, black is stuck. only the knight and queen can move. The queen can only move back and forth, but the knight can hop about. Get rid of it, and look for a way to mate the king. Remember, if the king is stuck, try to smother mate it. Only one piece can do that... oh, and remember: you want to smother mate the king on b3... and you have to get there while the queen is on a1 (or else she'll just take the knight)...think about tempo.


Good luck!
