This is a facinating opening. Totally new and original. There are so many openings and defences with their special names and titles in the ancient books of "Shatrang-Nameh" (Chess Book in Pahlavi or middle Persian language). This book was later named "Shatranj-Nameh".
The openings and defences such as "Iranian Attack", "Cyrus Opening", "Parthian Defence" etc. are new ones yet to be explored.
I've said it five months ago and I'll say it again: it's NOT fascinating. There's nothing fascinating or interesting about it. By calling such an opening that, you're proving that you're just bluffing and don't really understand chess at all.
"totally new and original", "yet to be explored".... you could say that about 99% of the first six or eight half-moves of the game of chess.
I'm just tired of seeing every opening being called "fascinating", the "fascinating king's gambit" has merit. The "fascinating smith-morra" not so much. The "fascinating queen's gambit" - yes, but you'll only fully appreciate it if you're 2500+. The "fascinating london system"... yeah right. And this opening that just breaks all the rules of openings and handicaps both players without any play on either side is a joke and is NOT FASCINATING, it's ridiculous. I guess simple things are fascinating to simple minds.
Chess is infinite. If this is true then Chess could not be limited to mainstream openings and defences.
Yeah, but this opening can't actually be used.
This is also an opening:
So is this:
Those are lines that have been explored,so they are openings.
I've said it five months ago and I'll say it again: it's NOT fascinating. There's nothing fascinating or interesting about it.
Yes it is fascinating... to see some people are trollish enough to try, let alone defend, that kind of lines.
you know i once new a persian, you know he opened with showing me a book about iran and i was no thanks, but thanks for frightening me.
