    Petroff is always nice. Try lots of them, Caro-Kann, Guico Piano...Never do this, though.


    It's called the Polerio Gambit, it has (misleadingly IMHO) good statistics for White and was the opening of the day on chess.com -- As so often in the King's gambit, it leads to a hair-raising game for both sides. It is definitely not "fail" at the club level or lower.

    At the expert and ordinary master level the Polerio's statistics are shockingly good. The only big time player to take up this opening in recent years (keeping in mind that King's Gambit _at all_ is very rare in elite chess) is errr um, IM Kamran Shirazi (yes, I know, he's Mr. Crazy-Opening-Guy) who made the Polerio opening his personal property from 2001-2004 and scored a blistering 88% percent with it in 12 games. (Admittedly, against lower rated opponents.)

    Kamran Shirazi used to play at the Santa Monica Chess Club when I joined it in 1979. He was a slim, young elite player we were all terrified of. As for the Petroff, that "dull, drawish" opening can result in a blood bath right in the center of the board!

    The Caro-kan defense is a good oppening in response to E4

    The main line is

    E4-C6

    D4-D5

    E4xD5

    C6xD5

    Forget about 1.e4 and 1.d4. Learn to attack from the corners. Join us in the vote chess games of these groups;

    1.b3 Nimzo-Larsen Attack

    1.Nf3 > c4 Reti

    KIA inc.

    We'll show you how. Wink

    Here is a good starting move aganist 5 to 10 out of ten players.

    1.Move the kings pawn forward 2 squares.

    2.Your oppenant should mirror your move to stop you advancing any further (Move their kings pawn forward two).

    3. You then move you queen out as far diagnal right as it will go.

    4. Your oppenant should move their pawn forward to attack your queen.

    5. Slide your queen left and take there pawn. They are in check and have to etiher move their bishop or queen in front.

    6.When they have done this take their kings rook.

    If they stuff up again you will also be able to take their knight!!!

    it kick arse!

    other things you can do are

     

    1. 4 move checkmate your oppnant

    2.Move the pawns infront of your king and queen forward 2 squares to let out your bishops and queen. Notice that if you only move them forward 1 square they block off your bishops.

    3.Scare them into forfiet!!!

    4.Do what i do kick arse!

    You can also put bishops and queens attacking pawns so that if they move the pawn their moving into check or

    attack the pawn dignally across from their rook so that if they move it you can take their rook.

    Mr. Madison, what you have just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    1.c4 e5

    2.Nc3 Bc5

    3.g3 Qf6

    4.Bg2...
