I call it the 1/2 ponziani scheme. 1. e4 e5 2. c3! Going after the center right away! Here is my analysis:
needs more a&h pawn action.
I call it the Macleod Attack. http://www.chess.com/opening/eco/C20_King_Pawn_Game_Macleod_Attack
Who is this Macleod person?? I'll bet he did not analzye these positions as well as I!!
Well, if it is not required to get any certain result...
..... whats up with everyone inventing openings?
We need a new meme.
and 1. e4 e5 2. c3 Qh4! 3.f3 defending the e pawn does not seem to work very well! I think you may have ruined my day unless someone can come up with a good response to 2. ...Qh4!
Heh, almost got me :p
Why worry about 2...Qh4, when nobody has found a decent reply to 2...Nf6?
...Qh4 is not "The critical reply."
This opening already exists.
1. e4 e5 2. c3 Qh4 3. d3
I could play d4 in the middle game. d3 will do for now.
I agree, because Qh4 is not necessarily the best square for the queen either.
Which is why 2...Nf6 makes this opening look silly. It forces 3. d3, with black playing a useful developing move, instead of Qh4
