what makes you think I am lying and not Deejay ? He said 1.d4 IS refuted, and shows (as his only proofs) some correspondence games, all with the same side variant in a Benoni.
There are only two possibilities:
1. He knows he is wrong.
2. He doesn't know. then he is a weak player, and hence he used an engine during the games.
In both cases he is lying.
i prove alot by beating your 1.d4 into the ground. Like i said 1.d4 REFUTED!!! Trolololololol
Here is the game where i Refuted Schlechter55 1.d4. Enjoy !!!
[Event "Let's Play!"]
1. d4 c5 2. d5 g6 3. c4 Bg7 4. Nc3 Bxc3+ 5. bxc3 f5 6. h4 Qa5 7. Qc2 Nf6 8. Nh3

Qb1 Nxf5 22. e4 Qc6 23. Rg1 Nd6 24. Rg4 Rg8 25. f3 Nc4 0-1
My otb rating is 2250.
This so-called Deejaydeejay has made claims, and they are are inconsistent with common chess knowledge. My conclusion is, he has low rating, and he plays with engine support.
Lol now you're the one who is lying. Do you hate yourself?
I agree with Ivandh. He is just jelly of my muffins.
I find it funny. Deejay still not realizes how thin the air around him became. He does not even try to give an analysis.
there are whole books written about 1.d4 c5. this alone puts the rigorous claim that 1....c5 would be a 'mistake', in doubt.
People write books to make MONEY. "Ya gotta have a gimmick" - S. Sondheim. Some of them will try to convince you to play 1.g4; 1.b4 and even 1.c3; 1.e3; 1.a3 etc. With Black it gets even weirder. True, 1.d4 c5 has slightly more legitimacy and had some success at first. But decades ago methods were found that give White a clear advantage. Remember these great words on the way to the bookstore: "There's a sucker born every minute" - P.T. Barnum
It is again the common misunderstanding what a 'mistake' is.
If you just mean that White has an advantage after 1....c5, I am fine with it.
But the word 'mistake' sounds like much more.
Aren't there other well-established black defenses that give white an advantage, too ?
Like 1.e4 Nf6, 1.e4 b6, perhaps even 1.d4 f5.
But nobody is calling them 'mistakes'. For the mere reason that the advantage that white gets is not a winning advantage, and black has counterplay.
Why is everyone having this completely ridiculous discussion!? To say that 1.d4 is refuted by 1...c5 just by posting a few games by some untitled nobodies having online blitz games is an absolutely incredible and absurd claim to make!
If Capablanca can't refute 1.d4 with 1...c5 then I don't think anyone could. Even though he won the game he came out with a slight advantage for white, just like any other opening.
I prefer jelly on my toasty.
OP is simply a Troll.
Why would you bump this retarded topic?
I always wondered y 1.d4 has been used in every world championship
in history... / clearly its because its the weakest.....
