A last-minute shout for an interesting evening of chess kicking off tomorrow at Battersea Chess Club!
IM Mike Basman is hosting an evening discussing openings – four maverick ways to start your game as follows:
- King’s Gambit Accepted: Basman Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.f4 exf4 3. Qe2)
- Sicilan Defence: Paulsen-Basman Defence (1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 e6 3.d4 cxd4 4.Nxd4 Bc5)
- St. George Defence (1.e4 a6)
- Borg/Basman Defence (1.e4 g5)
Pretty unusual, I’m sure you’ll agree!
If it tickles your fancy, please add your name to the following Google doodle, and drop Aldo a line to let him know:
