    What was the never before seen sacrifice?

    Problem with "deviating from theory" is you suddenly have to calculate alot more.

    I know one guy who always uses polish opening, has seemingly every line memorized. Turns an otherwise poor move into his domain...

I rarely won or lost a game but ended up in drawish endgames all the time. Not much fun.

    So when I finally realized that I would never become the world champion anyway, I put my books aside and started to play away from the mainline chess theory. I remember a strong opponent shouting 'Hey, you can't play like that!', when I completely broke the mainline and made a crazy, never seen before sacrifice in the opening moves. :laugh:

    But I started to enjoy chess again - and still do.

    so if you're true to your namesake shouldn't you do very well at chess as well?

    Scandinavias top Grandmaster ever, Danish Bent Larsen, was a fine example of Nordic chess genius. At one time he was considered to be the strongest chessplayer in the Western world. At tournaments he managed to beat even the world champions. I still enjoy his famous game against world champion Petrosian, when Larsen sacrificed his Queen in a daring attack.



    (Larsens' killer look was feared by most.)

    However, Larsen never managed to beat Fischer, and soon he had to resign as the Western Worlds' number 1. A new king had entered the board.

    The Russian chess genius, Alekhine (1892-1946), have supposedly written some articles, in which he condemns Jewish chess as being chaotic and unstructural. I have not been able to find those articles though.

    Actually I don't remember, but it was a poor move. A blunder. But with that move I managed to avoid being trapped by a well prepared opponent.

    In Yasser Seirawan's "winning chess tactics" he refers to Alekhine as a "nazi sympathizer".

    Alekhine made popular/usable the line
    1) e5-nf6 in an attempt to draw out and overextend white's pawns

    So, it would be strange of him to refer to jewish chess as "chaotic", since he was a tactical player himself.

    Anyone know if Vladimir Kramnik is jewish or not? I think he's replaced Kasparov now since he retired or whatnot; Kramnik beat Kasparov recently I believe.

    I played chess when I was younger. My dad taught me the basics when I was 5-6 years old and I became better than my father when I was 7-8 years old. Somtimes we spent weekends playing chess and solving chess puzzles. I joined a club when I was about 8 years old and I always won school tournament and I was always in the top 4 at club tournaments (for 6-12 year olds). When I was 11 years old I realized that chess wasn't cool enough so I quit the club and stopped playing chess.

    Few weeks ago the interest came back but acording to Chessmaster I suck and I have only 400-500 points.
