your 3rd game is just basically the botvonnik system just in a way different move order
I see. Next time I see such a possibility I will go for it. More bxf2 sacs
Hi from Nate!
Alex, you forgot to sacrifice your rooks or minor pieces. That's the problem you're running into.
Alex, your game against Jeffery chang follows my game against Mayhem_in _the_Morra up until move 11. Also you lost your game against Jeffery Chang and Myhem_in _the_Morra is losing against me. Coincidence? I think not.
Ok Alex, don't go back to the 1500's.
Davydov I will catch back up soon give me one more tournament and I will be over 1600.
His chess.com standard rating is 1349.
Ron Boger is about 1300-1400 strength and my new rating is 1601. Back over 1600's. That difficult hurdle!
It all started from me :)
@rybkashredder I got the colorful boards idea from Sahil.
Ron Boger is underrated right?
Oh yeah crosstables are up I think, what is your new rating?
its the hypermodern theory: fianchettoing bishops to counter at the huge pawn center. ex. d4 nf6, its umbalanced, yet black has equal winning chances.
I got the colorful boards idea from you and Robert. Against Jeffery he could have played 13...Nh5 and on Bxe7 he has to recapture with his queen and he gets a fair position so it is possible
I like the colorful boards!
In the fifth game, Couldn't have Jefferey played 13...Nh5!?
I guess he might have wanted to get me out of opening theory by playing a strange move order and avoiding my usual response to the English
it seemed so weird.
I asked him later why he played e4 if he wanted an English and his response was... Why not?
@z99j He was trying to transpose into a better english.
1.e4 e5 2.g3?!
what's up with that??
