MOT - Thematic: Adelaide-Wahls Variation in Kings Gambit Declined

Hi to all! I am back after several years! :-)
 
I would like to propose a new thematic tournament in the Adelaide-Wahls Variation in Kings Gambit Declined (sometimes it is called also Miles Defence in Kings Gambit)
which goes: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 f5.
 
It is a very interesting, sharp line, where both sides have lots of possibilities.
 
The organization system of tournament will depend, how many players we have, best would be round-robin.
The question of ev. prizes is also open.
 
Let me know - please - who would be interested to join.
 
Greetings from Poland to all, especially to those whom I have played here on Caissa 5-10 years ago.

Re: MOT - Thematic: Adelaide-Wahls Variation in Kings Gambit Declined
Hi to all,
thank You for the great response to my invitation!
 
I think it is now time to start the tournament.
Let's put the starting numbers according to reaction to the invitation - so Spud which answered first gets nr 1 and so on... :
-----------------
1. Spud
2. Grim
3. Kingsfull
4. TrencherKnight
5. DualSpace
6. power
7. JesusIsMyLord
-----------------
So each one plays 6 games:
Nr 1 plays white with 2, 4, 6
Nr 2 plays white with 3, 5, 7
Nr 3 plays white with 1, 4, 6
Nr 4 plays white with 2, 5, 7
Nr 5 plays white with 1, 3, 6
Nr 6 plays white with 2, 4, 7
Nr 7 plays white with 1, 3, 5
-----------------
I would suggest typical time control, given in challenges as default 20 moves/30 days and max 10 days single move.
 
The prizes I would like to give would be my books about the Damiano Variation in Russian Game (I published that in polish language, but since this are Variations it can be easily understood even without knowig polish language) - each one with my personal dedication and table of the tournament.
 
So let's put the challenges on - and we start!
Remember the thematic moves are: 1.e4 e5 2.f4 Nc6 3.Nf3 f5
 
There is a very interesting material about the Variation on a page
http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/kenilworthian/2007/03/adelaide-counter-gambit-bibliography.html
where the bibliography is mentioned.
Also a commented game:
http://www.kenilworthchessclub.org/games/java/2011/carrelli-goeller-2011.htm
 
Since I to make the games more interesting I would like to avoid quick disasters because of simply opening mistakes, let me only warn all of the folowing ways:
4.N*e5?? N*e5 5.fe5 Qh4 and black win
4.fe5? fe4 5.Ng1 Ne5 and black have a big advantage
4.Bb5?! fe4 5.N*e5 N*e5 6.fe5 c6 7.Bc4 Qg5 and black is better
 
But quite playable are lines:
4.Nc3;
4.d3;
4.d4;
4.Bc4
and also sharp 4.ef5 e4! and now
5.Ng5 or
5.Ne5 or
5.Qe2 with Ng5/Ne5 in 6. move.
So there is still lot to choose. :-)
Let's go!

best regards to all!
