Coffee House Chess with IM Mike Basman – 4th Sep!

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!
