    Dear Nf3,

    Bringing in the calvary early? I believe this is a big mistake for 3 reasons:

    1. The archers will have their bows ready and will make their first strike.

    2. If they charge; you have no choice but to retreat.

    3. You fail to show respect to the weaker ones, decreasing you culture.

    As you can see; you have failed to live up to your expectations. Next time; bring the footsoldiers in early to stand and fight.

    Regards,

    Grandmaster3141

    P.S. Bring your brother in and I will kill you.

    From now on you're paying your own way.

    dear d4,

    I tried to give you another chance by learning the veresov. However, I came to find that this can only gain a slight positional advantage, and is not as devestating as the Parham Attack.

    The only sound d4 opening is the Waite-Harrison.

    Dear f5 followed by g6, 

    What's up?  You getting ready for a siege or something?

    Dear Veresov:

    You are a worthless piece of crap. You promised so much, but there is just nothing there. No tension, no fun, no uncomfortable pressure. I feel I wasted all the time we were together. Please jump off the nearest bridge, especially if it's over troubled waters--or at least muddy waters.

    Your friend,

    Spuddy

    Dear Scotch:

    I had a fun time with you, exploring all your tactical variations. However, my trusted friend Wikipedia says you release the centre tension too early. Because I am a blind follower of whatever is on the internet, I have to leave you.

    Have a nice life!

    Dear spuddy, can you sign my name on that letter too? That's how I feel about the veresov too, after giving it a few weeks of work.

    Dear e4:

    I know that some other people are renewing their dealings with you, because they are disappointed with d4. And it is true enough that under the right circumstances, you are better for beginning players.

    But where I play chess, playing 1. e4 is simply taken as an invitation to play 1. ... c5, and lead the beginner into the deep waters of the Sicilian, rather than openings like the Guioco Piano or the Four Knight's Game, which are intended to result from beginners following the standard advice. So I won't be seeing you too often until I can find other beginners to play with.

    Instead, it's Michael Stean's book I need to take off the shelf...

    Eh, I found the veresov to just be dull, i mean it's the reverse position of the ruy lopez so I can understand. I actually have awesome results with the Parham.

    Dear KG,

    You are my favorite! Every time I play against you I win in 20 moves, keep on going!

    suprised you have never heard that, any way it is essentialy the same thing as having to go under oath in a court, only it only means something to scouts. anyway , I promise not to use an engine, durring the entire game, even the endgame, and the middle game, not even a database, so help me God. hope that chees version means something.

    Dear open good-bye letter to the spirit of d4 thread,

    Things used to be so good between us.  What happened?  Our light-hearted and clever banter at some point devolved into banal and unfunny observations and the two of us telling each other the same stories over and over as though we were a long married couple, well into our autumn years.  It seems as though that spark we had when we first met has disappeared.  I sincerely hope that we can find a way to rekindle the enjoyment we once had.

    Optimistically,

    TheGrobe
