Gambito #381

381st Gambito

Congratulations to Perry Sagart for making Class A, 1800 on the nose. He had a tough pairing schedule and made the best of it. And congratulations too to the winner, IM Cyrus Lakdawala, who doesn't always get mentioned because he's so consistant. Daniel Grazian won a game with my very favorite opening 1.e4 e5 2.Bc4 Nf6 3.d4 which I believe continued 3...Nc6 4.Nf3 Nxe4 5.dxe5 Bc5 6.Qd5 0-0 7.Qxe4 d6 8.Bd3 1-0. Try to name another opening that's as dangerous.

[Chuck's notes: Bruce has inspired many of his students with his strong attacking spirit. As a young player himself once, before he became a master, he won many games with this opening and it maybe even helped him become a master (or so I have heard). Sorry I missed this Gambito, looks like a really good one. Bruce used the usual McMahon pairing system with M/E=2, A=1, B/C =0. There was an evenly balanced field (which makes for a good McMahon) with 3 Masters, 3 Experts, 6 Class A, 7 Class B, and 5 Class C and below, so 24 players in all, not counting the 2 house players. See you guys next week! Oh and congrats to Bruce for the draw with Cyrus, and even with the Black pieces, which he always seems to get against Cy. Also good to see Ali Morshedi back, another strong player (along with the frequent player Peter Graves) to give Bruce and Cy some tough competition. Next week we may see Bruno and Bryant too!]     

Next week:  August Super-Gambito
