      The Janisch Gambit is an exceptionally effective surprise weapon for black against the Ruy Lopez. Also known as the Schliemann Defense, black kicks off the game by immediately offering a pawn sacrifice on move 3 with 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bb5 f5!? – resembling a reversed Vienna Gambit or King’s Gambit in that black is rapidly introducing extra firepower with the f-pawn to attack white’s center.

    • FOXY OPENINGS - VOLUME 151 - Crushing Black With The Deadly Ponziani
      Grandmasters have recently discovered that the Ponziani is a useful surprise weapon, and in 2012 and 2013 the opening has been played frequently at the highest level. Even Magnus Carlsen has used it! Therefore at club level, a good knowledge of the tactics and strategical objectives that White has after 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 c3!?, could easily rack up the wins. There is a lot less to know and learn about the Ponziani than any of the Ruy Lopez, the Italian Game or the Scotch, which are White's three main open-game weapons. Thus the opening has a very practical element to it.

    • The California Chess Reporter - VOLUME 7
      July 1964 - June 1967
      Chess historians and collectors consider the California Chess Reporter the gold standard for California chess magazines. It has combined all the pertinent information that a chess historian looks for: who played in what tournament, club or league, when and where it was played, and, of course, the game scores. The match results, club results, league results, tournament cross tables, and game scores that appeared every month for both Northern and Southern California answered all of these criteria and more. In 1967-1971 chess activity increased throughout the state. No longer were players playing primarily for the honor and the glory. They wanted the money. Class tournaments started being held, where players would compete in the Class A, Class B or Class C sections for big cash prizes
