DAMIANO VARIATION FRIENDLY MATCH
Hi to all!
 
Since NOVA 2013 is advanced about in 60% results, I hope this initiative would not disturb.
 
I would like to give a challenge to all Caissa players for a Friendly Thematic Match in so called Damiano Variation in Petroff's Defense:
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.N*e5 N*e4!? 4.Qe2 Qe7 5.Q*e4 d6 6.d4 de5
 
I like very much this variation, have even published about.
The general idea is that black sacrifice a pawn, but try to get initiative - white either try to keep this pawn and neutralize mentioned initiative or give back the pawn, trying to get positional advantage. Black want to prove, that the pawn sacrifice was correct and they get real initiative for a pawn or at least a draw in ending.
 
My idea is that I play all the games with black, with each opponent 2 games:
- one with a main white's line 6.d4
- second with alternative 6.f4;
in both black play 6...de5.
 
Many years ago (around 2005) I hosted on Caissa such a match, it was a good experience.
So I invite again!
 
I plan to start this MOT in about 2 weeks, ex. on June 1st.
 
regards!
Peter
