I'm experimenting with some opening idea I saw somewhere with 1... Nf6. Would black want to push their e pawn? What about the c-pawn?
white played horribly there. As for the opening, I dont know too much it depends I think on white's play as well
lol I think maarten is having some chess pains
Looking over it again, I think white could have had the upper hand easily.
Apart from 1. d4, 2. h4 was probably the best move white made in that game >_<
Alright, we see that white made stupid moves, but I'm more curious about black.
I guess you could have taken a little more space in the center, 3. ... d5 instead of 3. ... d6. Also after Nb5 c6 would have come with tempo. 6. Qf4 hangs the c2-pawn. 6. ... Nd5 is a serious mistake, as after 7. Qf3 it pretty much has to retreat, even though black is still a lot better. O-O, c6 or Nbd7 are all absolutely fine. Seriously though, it's not really a game worth analyzing.
Look up "King's Indian Defense" and I think you'll find a lot of what you're looking to learn.
