I'm Looking for Good Combinations to make an evective entry and opening. I'm bored of the basic E4. (:
effective entree combination
LOL! I was expecting Sushi or Fried chicken! :b
umm, come in behind the jab for a jab, jab, cross, hook?
Seriously... I'm asking.. (:
d4 is so much better than e4. Catalan, Fianchetto King's Indian, Fianchetto Grunfeld, Anti-Benoni, Maroczy Bind setups against attempts at the Sniper (1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.Nf3 c5 4.e4! cxd4 5.Nxd4).
Basically, you have 2 results instead of 3. Win, and Draw. Take "Loss" out of the equation.
Thanks... Looks Epic (:
1. e4 isn't basic. If it was then chess would be easy :)
All beginners learn E4 first because it's the most easy combination and defense. The others require more planning. (:
What is the fastest way for me to bring out the rooks?
Any combination? Like a 6move combination? a4. h4 is just a basic move
Why don't you play King's Gambit??
1. e4 best by test-Fischer
I'm just saying I'm bored of E4. Want to do something else
lol.Try f3,Kf2,g3,Kg2 setup.Not at all 'BASIC' and great chances for combinations.
I would suggest the Schmidlap maneuver, Ra1xe8!!
I recommend this line:
It definitely will surprise your opponent and take them out of book. White aims to develop quickly and take control of the central squares.
This thread is filled with trolls and BS openings.
