I like to play blitz at my free time.I play the French,Sicilian Kan,Benoni,KID and sometimes the QID and as white the Italian Game or KIA structures but I would really like to learn some new fun openings to spice things up from time to time,so...any suggestions?
Yea, I got one. Try Fried Liver as black. Here's how it goes: 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd5 Na5 6. Bb5+ c6 7. dxc6 bxc6 8. Qf3 or Be2
Although you gambit a pawn, you have a good development and it'll be easier to attack. I'm just that kind of agressive player.
Gambits in general. Example: Elephant Gambit. 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d5
3/0 is so fast, you may as well play anything. If you play what you know best, you'll at least be able to save a few seconds of actual thinking.
I have tried the FLA but with not so much success...the Elephant gambit after exd5 Qxd5 Nc3 Q retreats so I don't think it's a good idea...
If you ever get in a tight position in 3/0, you'll burn all your time thinking.
True true that's why I try to play as much as possible from the book in the opening so as to have more time to think at the middle and endgame
Lines where you know very well your plans are just as effective, even more so than gambit lines where you know some tricks.I dont really play blitz, but I can blast out moves in the berlin and many of my reti variations without thinking.
Any other suggestions?
At best, 3-min would be where you play stuff you know inside out so you don't have to think much.
You should use the repertoire you use for slow play.
I usually make stuff up.in 3 min
A knight in the center is as strong as a piece!
I mean a much piecier piece.
I am thinking of giving this a try against the Sicilian Defense,it is called the Kopec system:
Not that bad, but you'd rather use a more refined approach: 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6 3.c3 Nf6 4.h3 Nc6 5.Bd3.
h3 can be played after e6(either 2.e6 or at any other time)
here is an instructive video of his:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbmcoohIWjY
