You look a lot like Taylor Swift.
If you solve this you really need a coach!
nate23 did you solve it?
and ya i get that alot that i look like taylor swift!
Yeah, sure thanks, I love Mentos.
No I did not solve it. I gave up after trying e4, d4, and other top moves. 1.b3 shows that white does not know anything about openings. 2.f3 is just a pathetic move that does almost nothing except open up whites king. 3.f3 is horrible, and 4. d3 is a mistake because white is now extremely weak on dark squares. after 4...d5 black is equal, and has good chances, meaning white failed in his opening.
1.b3 shows that white does not know anything about openings.
Yeah, know nothin's, just like that Patzer-woodpusher Bent Larson.
White shows bad opening knowledge because the whole point of 1.b3 is to follow it up with 2.Bb2. After the third move black can equalize! Unless you are trying for a novelty, don't play this. When white plays unpopular openings, they are usually trying to sidestep opening preperation so they can quickly get to the middlegame where they think they will do better. Fischer as black is a great example, he sidestepped most theory by playing ...g6, Bg7, Nf6, and 0-0 so he can get to the middlegame more quickly where he excelled.
Help my game!I solved it!!
Awww... Taylor Swift is a vile timesucking obvious troll. That sux. Hey... Do you smell waffles?
Chess mentor seems to be a lot easier to get rating points on than it was a few months ago.
I don't know if it's easier or harder. but it's definitely different.
Yep. I noticed the same thing. And for me it's been harder. I'm hemorraghing mentor points. Maybe you've gotten stronger, scott
Maybe, but even the lessons I felt like I haven't done great on, asked for hints etc were normally raising my points. I barely lost points on any exercises the last few months, apart from the beginner ones 'how to move a bishop' etc, and that was because it asks you to select the key squares and then docks you points for doing so! I think it depends to a large extent on what lessons you do.
freind request me to get free training from me and free mentoring.
What's your rating?
i go to chess class 6 days a week at 2pm
You lost all credibility with this thread. Firstly, you have yet to play a game and secondly the "puzzle" demonstrates very poor chess skills.
