A very good Opening. This might even be better than the Bongcloud. This will defenitly dominate any player that faces this, from FIDE 100-4000!
This is probably the greatest opening ever. There is absolutely no defense for it. Boris Spasky used to play this and that was probably why he was world champion. Of course until fischer came along and used it against him. This opening is the key to becoming a GM.
d4 d5 nc3 c6 and d4 d5 nc3 e6 bf4 nf3 nb5 bb4+ c6 ba5 both avoid pawn+rook loose
The queerinator, I completely agree. This is one of the most aggressive, soundest, strongest openings of all time. Tacticisacting123, judging on your rating I don't think you're allowed to bash this opening based on your rating. Please chess.com community, give your opinions on this wonderful opening!
i have started playing this opening every game and have a 98% win ratio while playing it. This opening is very dynamic and flexible and puts black at a complete disadvantage so great that white would have a hard time losing after playing this.
i just watched this opening from blacks point of veiw and even playing all the right moves you are in a much worse position and have to struggle the rest of the game.
I really hope this is a joke. In one of the best online chess databases, only 1 (one) of over 630 000 games follows the first three moves (six half moves). Maybe it is because in this "variation" black plays like a monkey.
BTW, in that only game Black wins by checkmate on move 30. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessgame?gid=1627806
But OK, in that game White plays well, but certainly not chess.
i certainly hope that post was a joke. White played like crap in that game and was doing fine for the moves he did following the line. white just didnt capitalize on its superior position in that game
senor_ananas is wrong. My monkey would certainly not play 3...Nc6, she is not that stupid.
Other than that, that opening can be lethal: There is a great danger that any sane Black will die from laughter when he faces this junk.
You are right that this opening can be lethal but it is lethal from the great threat it poses to black that is near impossible to stop.Also im pretty sure nc6 is the main line in this great opening.
Ah, OK, I will tell my monkey. Currently she is practicing another great opening against GM urinator.
Is there a black version for this? The_Gavinator please respond or anyone else with info on it.
Do you realise the point of the second moves of each player. 2.Nc3 is not played with the threat 3.Nxd5 as that would be met with 3...Qxd5 and you would be down a knight. The idea of moving the knight to c3 is to support the advance e2-e4.
I hope that this makes you rethink the whole line as the reason behind the moves make the continuation different. The move 3....Nc6 is a move without purpouse as it only attacks a defended pawn.
well, IM pfren, probably you don't remember, but you and I have some things in which we didn't find a conclusion (to be........... not so drunk that I am..) anyway, now I understand that you are not a bad person, you just write your opinions in a rude way. But who cares, you are right, so we patzers have to (should!!!) take your advice even if you are telling anything... now I am sure that you have many things to tell me and I just have to listen if I want to get better. Thank you for your dumbass time you spent with us" ;)
AlecEs i dont think you can judge this opening based on your rating and e4 is pointless because it nullifies the attack and nc6 is the main line for black. This opening is almost unstoppable.
almost unstoppable. you forgot about the legendary g5 line
g5 hangs a pawn and gives white a position that a novice could hold off a gm with
What a genius move! If your opponent dies at the board, they lose on time!
