How are you proving the Owen's Defence is bad?
Or is this humilation towards Richard?
he goes around saying it's the best opening ever
But why are you humilating it in public?
What good is it doing?
he told me to actually
That's not what I see in your forum
why the london is rubbish against the King's Indian.
In fact I see it says DONT PUT the game.
You're not using it for a good purpose but humilation!
Don't you dare put our game into that forum jake, i let you win on purpose and u will just humiliate me."
I copied this from the forum. i see that as a completely different response.
yup looks pretty bad to me!
DON'T ENCOURAGE IT!
To me, that's a fairly negative statement. DON'T you dare... so unless you two are good mates and you can judge when he's saying "don't do this" and when he's joking around, I'd say your post is simply a d*ck move.
Anyways, how is one gme an example of why the Owens is a bad defence? I don't think it's great, by any means, but if you want to refute it you're going to have to do a lot more work than simply posting one game, devoid of sideline annotations. Where's your analysis?
i know but u have to counter-attack(Q-side) and if u don't u are in alot of trouble
that's my point
Yes we are good mates...that sums that up!
Yes but Jake, I see no analysis and as you admitted, you are just doing this for humilation.
At least there should be some analysis.
And 1 game doesnt mean its bad
Some openings allow a dangerous attack in the view of getting a dangerous attack to counter it.
The Owen's just allows a dangerous attack with no counterplay at all. It's not game over, but if black manages to survive he is still no better than equal.
U guys dont know any thing about the owen's. look at GM tony j. miles' games. he was one of the most famous british grandmasters ever and he had alot of succes with this opening. all i did wrong was one small flaw in the opening which allowed and accumilation of local superiority of material around my king. jake- ANY ANALYSIS?
It's okay with me if it helps people to understand that the Owen's Defence is bad, but not if it is simply for humiliation as I did not play very well- it's not the opening's fault. One of the most famous British GM's -Tony J. Miles has had many successes with it. Jake does not provide concrete analysis to accompany his work and laughs in my face. That is not okay.
I, on the other hand, provide analysis so that my articles can help people and I give reasons why something is bad. Come on, Jake!
By the way it says 0-1
We didn't say it was bad.
WE WANT PROOF TO SHOW THE OWEN'S DEFENCE IS BAD.
Otherwise, no proof means its a good opening.
No "proof" that I'm not a genius doesn't mean I'm a genius.
Nobody cares if you play the owen's and think it's good, play it and get punished all you want.
