Until they found out you are still alive and not just a Myth Sir. It would be an great to see any additions or amendments nearly another 9 years on.

Alekhine said that 1.b4 was an old move, and that the problem is that it reveals White’s intentions, before White knows what Black’s intentions are.

Thanks for creating such a nice tournament. I played one and I found that it is a playable opening. Without the forms ent I'd probably never try it! It is really a Polish opening - crazy :)

Hi,

the orangutan isn't the most popular opening but it is fun to play.

Would anyone like to join this 7 day / move tournament? 1900 - 2300 rating.

I'm hoping this will get another 3 people to join quicker than if I didn't post.
