After a week of research I proudly present to Chess.com- the Poisen Pawn Gambit
I call it the Poisned Pawn Variation because 75% of the time, Black advances 3-4 pawns gaining an easy way develop pieces. Please Comment, and give any suggestion!
Note:- Please try to look at all the variations i put in
after 1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 f5 then 3. e5 is a BIG mistake by White and against opening principles. White has to take the f Pawn or find some other move but not 3. e5? which moves a Pawn twice in the opening for no good reason.
There is nothing poisoned about that pawn. In fact, it looks rather tasty. For Black to successfully gambit a pawn, he needs some sort of very specific compensation for it. This doesn't even promote development at all.
Back to the drawing board!
A word to the wise, it would be very hard to come up with any kind of sound gambit that has not been discovered in the last 100 years or so.
If you come up with a gambit which is against opening principals--then you can guess that something is wrong with it. [or, usually, many things wrong with it]
Sorry if this sounds mean but it is reality.
There are probably plenty of sound gambits which do not violate basic opening principals.
after 4.Ne5, then take on c4 with the bishop
I like to push a lot of pawns to gain space, but i didnt see an opening where black has a huge pawn mass in the center so i decided to create the opening that would undermine white's center without using center pawns c5 was good but i needed extra ammo so i used f5, even though I weaken the kingside it's still possible so i tried my beat in the Pirc Alekhine French CaroKann and finally the Sicilian so i introduced the f5 Gambit. In this I used the pawn to give up the dumb f7 pawn for a useful central pawn and got easy development and black can now easily shore up all of his weaknesses. It might be weird but it suits my style and like it a lot.;)
3.ef5 d5 4.Bb5+ Bd7 5.Nc3 is already totally resignable: Black is a clear pawn down, lacking in development, and full of nasty holes.
The Fred Defence (1. e4 f5) is one of those joke openings in the same category as the Bongcloud.
This could be view as an inferior version of the Fred, because on top of everything else white has been allowed a tempo to develop his knight
Mr. Apex, I am not trying to be mean but you need to find someone who can teach you basic principals about the openings in chess. Why some moves are inheritedly bad and some moves make more sense.
All that Mr.Apex needs is a chess engine to tell him how all his moves lose.
It could not have been backed up by computer analysis.
a computer can tell him how a specific move is bad but a human can tell him why that move and similar moves are bad moves because of basic chess principals..
improved version of the take variation
might be more encouraging
I used Fritz 5.32
and my favorite part of the game is the opening so i constantly try to make openings but other than this i play Queens Gambit as white or Italian and play the Caro-Kann and SemiSlav as black. I'm just trying to think out of the box here and please don't call me Mr. Apex cse im just 14. Hope I made my point clear.
And why in God's name is white playing Nh4? Instead of, oh, I don't know, d4?
I call it the Poisned Pawn Variation
Sorry, its already got a name. Its called the duras gambit
wow i didn't know that but i dont believe because i haven't seen it in the Sicilian Gambit
sorry Sicilian Defense
Listen, ApexKiller. I have a couple of students which are less than half your age. They are very new to the game, they know just the very basics.
I can assure you that none of them would ever think playing 4.Nh4. Even a child of that age who knows almost nothing, can judge that this move is quite simply nonsensical and counterintuitive.
You'd better learn the fundamentals too, and foget about inventing openings. Karjakin, who was a Grandmaster at the age of 12 years 4 months, had not "invented" any opening at 14.
Does anyone know when iOS will get the new "v3" app?
