Shouldn't it be "invinted?"
hey whenever my opponent plays Qh4!? i play the novelty Nxh4!!...........
very difficult to find unless u memorises this opening stuff....
I guess you didn't understand the point of the opening. Qh4 is the novelty.
This squabbling is unbecoming of chess pioneers like ourselves.
Freaking hilarious. I have never laughed this hard
Then I guess you've never seen my "invinted a new opening" thread?
I love the haha opening game, Mark. Great forum fun people!
The "invinted" series is pretty funny too.
I can't believe the number of goofballs that think any 3 random moves is a "system" or that a trap invented in 1490 should be named after them.
Actually this opening was invented by Siddhartha, an Indian GM,
back in 540 BCE. It was formally called the Buddha Gambit and he became enlightened after winning the game. This gambit was lost for close to 2553 years until the UnMaster became enlightned too. Siddhartha was rated 2903 but it is lost to history.
Master Po is very wise
In order for white to get an advantage in that line, white must decline the queen sacrifice and obtain the opposition with 4.Ke2!!
How come you did not use this opening in our game
1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.Bd3 is actually interesting. If black plays Nc6 then c3 will have white get his Ruy Lopez bishop to c2 with several tempi gained. 3...d5 could be a problem for white though. 4.exd5 Nxd5?! 5.Nxe5 Qe7 6.0-0 or 5...Nf4 6.0-0 so black can play 4...Qxd5?! 5.Nc3 followed by 0-0. Looks interesting. 4...e4! seems to kill white's plans though. Too bad. And after 3...d5 4.Nxe5, the bishop on d3 is misplaced. You know, there is a reason why this move (3.Bd3) is never played as a refutation of the Petroff, because it proves the Petroff's strength.
