    Looks like a nice game ,havent had the time to look at different variations ..but pretty cool!
    Thanks! I showed it to my "sparring partner" at my local (chess) club - he thought (quite rightly) that ...Bg4 instead of my ...Bd6 was a much stronger move.

    I think I'd be at a middle-low board at the standard I'm playing now, I don't think I'm playing at 140 anymore. If I played a couple of hundred games over the summer I might get close, but I'm busy with American football most days of the week.

    Sounds good! Where is it being held?

    I think London could do with a chess park. Along the South Bank would be ideal! Or in Hyde Park or something

    EDIT: Just had a look at the link
