    Personally I do not play the Wolga-Benkö (maybe up to now!). I prefer the Dutch in spite of being German. :D
    It was a little bit surprising to me, that there so many attack-possibilities against the white kings position. The Bc8-a6-c8-f5(g4) manoeuvre was very impressive as well. Thanks to Karel!

    Dear Waldemar,
    I just want to say that I really like your chessedelic-side. Everything seemed to be done with great enthusiasm, great care and effort although always very up to date. I am a(n amateur) chess trainer as well, and I hope that a lot of improving chess fans will find their way to your homepage.
    Chessio pardon Cheerio!

    Hi Flowerkraut,

    Thanks for your kind words!
    I hope you keep enjoying Chessedelic.
    I will pass on the compliment to Karel.
