I think this is a fairly decent opening and you can fool many players this way with your queen if you're white.
It depends on the other player's rating I guess
to paulgottlieb. if you answer 2.qh5 with 2...nc6 white can play 3.bc4 forcing 3...g6, or 3.bb5 keeping you on the defensive. as for the gavinator refer to my last post about your qsfl.
Fairly decent opening if you can find an opponent daft enough to play g6 you mean...
I played this in the Bongcloud Memorial last June vs. GM Vitaly Jerkov. He never saw it coming.
See? It can work :)
No this opening is great, you are all just so dull. It launches a powerful attack.
kgwkyle, i think you missed dannyrench's joke. he played GM vitaly JERKOV.unless the joke's on me and there really is a GM vitaly jerkov or your just playing along.
uhohspaghettio, you beat me to the punch but there should be bongcloud memorial. in negril, jamacia.
dude! i just tried this opening and it totally didn't work.
Some idiot played it against me in 7th grade. I had the bright idea to play Nc6 and was considered the biggest genius in the room for at least a few minutes there. Well worth it!
gavinator, you aren't nakamura. he played it twice in GM play to a draw both times, hardly a precedent.
I looked at your recent games, you havent...
wait, are my OTB games not showing up here? hmm.
Your most recent game was center counter defence
Personally, I find it very frustrating to play opponents who use their queen and nothing else. In such games I try to ensure that the queens are exchanged A.S.A.P.
well it didn't work for me
I think the opening is playable, but you shouldn't expect 2. ... g6 from anyone with a rating higher than 500
Crap! I just lost using this to some lunkhead in a white t-shirt. The bum played a good counter defense.
Tough luck for Aronian 5.5 hour game!!!
