The Adams attack is 6.h3!? against the Najdorf, with the intention of g2-g4 and Bg2, seeking an improved g3 variation.
I see. I always thought Black could get decent play with a quick e6-d5 in that line since White is taking his sweet time organizing his play. I could be very wrong, of course.
white does indeed get a comfortable game but if black plays correctly white should not gain any advantage.
where are you, expertise 87?
are you back after a long break or am I seeing ghosts?? LOL Illinois
BTW, why no Petroff Defence? and what do you play against the pirc/modern complex? Also, a 2100 (I believe it is ThrillerFan) says the tarrasch is "not a serious try for white" after c5? I have started to play for tarrasch and i follow your lines after nf6 and play an IQP position against c5. Can you show some specific lines?Glad you are back and your work is always appreciated.
Also, is your goal to make this a complete "white repertoire"then i think something against the center counter and against the pirc/modern complex should be next on the to-do list.

Yes well TF is very...opinionated...
Yeah, I accept that Black can equalize (or come close enough) in major openings and I play to positions where I feel I have good chances regardless of objective advantage (which is actually less than meaningless to me, if I think I have a slight advantage I will try unnecessarily hard to find ways to justify it while if I realize it's objectively equal I will find more original ideas and accept equality at the end of the line).
I have a lot more stuff but I'm working on fleshing it out. Also I'm releasing it into my group Working toward Master, so if you're interested in more material send me an application!
also what to do in CK if Nf6?
Take the knight and develop, it's actually not a difficult line to play for White at all. I have a game I'll post but it's too late tonight.
in fact i didn't mean that, I meant in the Nh3 lines
but this game would be useful too
Now I will be looking briefly at 1.e4 e5 with a Scotch Gambit move-order. I also play the Scotch Game and will be covering that in a later series of posts.
This post will look at early mistakes by Black, and some Nf6 lines.
I am not impressed with the 11. Be3 interposition rather than 11. f4. I have been playing the Scotch Gambit off and on for 5 years and think your analysis is pretty much in line with my own, but there are several lines club players seem to have a preference for where I can delay moving my Bishop, particularly 11 ... Ne6, which is a very straightforward game for White.
