It's nothing rated or serious but I got the better of someone extremely easily earlier at club night with the black pieces playing against his 1.c4?! which no-one has beaten me with it otb... yet
The checkmate is a pure classic
He missed it lol, I saw it moves ago that's why I had to set it up! Although I give 1.c4?! an inaccuracy I'm only joking around it's just I don't like the opening, and I always refute it. Simples!
Yeah I was expecting (8.f4) but a good move would have been just to play 8.Bg2, even 8.Nf3 directly challenging the knight is ok here, anything but walking into a mate-in-1
After Ne5, f4 immediately comes to mind as the move to play.
I'll gladly play in in an English game to show you the poison you think you're immune to ;)
Yep, massive "WHOOPS" and "OUCH" lol shame it wasn't a rated game, but that's what a club "knock-about" practice is all about... trying and experimenting with new ideas and when they don't work, ditch them!
But when they do work - keep them and work them into your repertoire... with the help of an engine I will see if my 7.Ne5 was legit... if it is/was I will keep it in my symmetrical style defence! Thanks for the comments guys
