This opening I personally like! With everything being left up to how good you can play (1/3 White won 1/3 Draw 1/3 Black won)! So this really is an opening left up to how good you can actually play the game + It is good if you wanted to challange yourself to how good you can play! Also if you are tired (Like I am) of the old 1.e4 e5 or 1.d4 d5 this is an opening I would recommend to you for an interesting game!

Below you will find the opening position, and if you look lower you will find a game in which it was the first time a computer defeated a human (Deep Blue vs. Garry Kasparov) with this opening, AND the possible continuations!

Hope you enjoyed the first look at an opening, Norb68 ;D
