Unorthodox Openings Newsletter
If you are serious about unorthodox openings, then you will definitely want to check out some issues of the Unorthodox Openings Newsletter. The early ones are simply a collection of various (often amateur) games featuring oddball openings. But the more recent issues typically feature analysis, annotated games, and history. You will even find some book-length issues devoted to the Zilbermints Gambit (1.d4 d5 2.e4 dxe4 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.f3 exf3 5.Nxf3 e6 6.Bg5 Be7 7.Bd3 Nc6 8.O-O?!?! Nxd4 9.Kh1!?), the Grob (1.g4?!?), and the Halloween Gambit (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4.Nxe5?!?!) Lots of ideas for the adventurous chess player out to have fun.
