Here are a few URL's with hyperlinks, to sites featuring Old Indian info. There is more to be
found by simply doing a google search for the Advanced Specific Phrase of "old indian
defense" , which is how I found these which were part of that search.
RE: The Old Indian, one of its main functions is for use against players of the Samisch WT
variation, which it is supposed to discourage. One can see in the game given last below, that
black can come to attack very quickly from the Old Indian. (Tho my MCO 14 calls it a stodgy
but solid system, hard to beat. :)
THE following game, Polugaevsky vs Nezhmetdinov 1958, is a
wonderful attacking, sacrificial game won by Black; who passive
sac's his Queen among other things, to end with a white King to
be mated by a knight on a6~!

Chess doesn't get respect it deserves -- My 17-year-old son recently was away playing in a chess tournament. As a parent of a child who has been playing in chess tournaments since he was 8, I find myself wavering between feelings of amazement and disappointment. The kids I've met over the years at chess competitions are an amazing lot. They remain calm under pressure, endure long hours of intense concentration yet somehow manage to stay focused and analytical. While other sports depend at least in part on luck, winning chess players succeed by outthinking and outmaneuvering their opponents. What I find disappointing is how little attention chess players receive for their achievements. Our ...

An Elite Chess Player Fails to Learn From a Competitor’s Mistake -- Before the Internet and laptop computers and chess databases, chess players who wanted to keep abreast of developments in the opening phase of the game had to rely on magazines and books. They were published weeks or even months after important games, so the information was often out of date. Today’s top competitors have a wealth of up-to-the-minute information, particularly about games of other elite chess players. So they should be prepared for every match. But that’s not necessarily the case. At the rapid chess tournament in León, Spain, which ended last weekend, Wang Yue of China was leading Magnus Carlsen of Norway in a semifinal match. All he had ...

Chess stars battle at National Open in Las Vegas -- Two Southern Californians led a powerful field at the National Open in Las Vegas last weekend. Grandmaster Varuzhan Akobian and IM Enrico Sevillano shared first place in the 89-player Open section with scores of 5-1. The chess tournament included 17 GMs. Entering the final round, 12 chess players were tied at 4-1. Three of the games between them ended in hard-fought draws, and a fourth was drawn without a struggle. However, Akobian defeated GM Laurent Fressinet of France, a 2008 co-winner, and Sevillano upset GM Evgeny Bareev of Russia, once ranked fourth in the world. Akobian overcame particularly difficult pairings. Earlier, he had drawn one of the favorites ...
