I'm playing in this tournament and I'm booking up on 1.c4, against 1.e4 is Nf6, against 1.d4 is f5, against 1.Nf3 is e5.

I wish you all good luck!

Can the World Champion win WI Junior Championship? Perhaps not yet as Tommy Ulrich will be there.

Against 1.Nf3 is e5. Really You are going to gambit your e pawn???

I think he left that as a joke. Why would he give his actual repertoire away??

I wish I could play in this tournament, but I am in ATL until late Friday night.

What if Ben's opponents don't play this way? Maybe this works online. But some of our club players might not fall for this.

The only tournament where you can go +3 =2 -0 and still lose 10 rating points!

Drawing patzers does this, Troy!

Jim Coons said...

Too bad USCF doesn't have MSA records of our tournaments before 1991 (this only applies to us oldies).

okay so troy can lost 10 pts but he's just a jr.

Troy played down for the entire event, losing 10 points is a blessing!

Troy said...

Wow, didn't mean to start anything here. I definitely wouldn't call these players patzers, they are young juniors that are rapidly improving and feasting on strong competition.

In fact, it was just a few short years ago that Troy himself feasted in similar manner!
