    Is that Chigorin? Nah, nevermind.

    My favorite line in an open game was the Berlin wall which starts up with 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 Nf6 4.0-0 Nxe4 5.d4 Nd6 and so on.

    Should I use diagram on it?

    @nylesel cant that be converted very easily into a well known drawn endgame?

    @Moses the evans is interesting but considered inferior now a days. Im not a big fan of the Zaitsev, Sokolov killed it in the TATA steel he played like a hybrid of it

    @chessteenager: 

     Berlin has many chances for a drawn endgame, but I like to play it since that theory requires great positional understanding and to be a good strategist. :D

    But it's still an open game right?

    Kasparov do losses on Berlin against Kramnik on championship match, but there's a game where Kasparov then learns how to play it against Kramnik and win the game. I can share the game here if you want to, :D

    He didn't lose against the Berlin, all the games were drawn. But he was outprepared by Kramnik, and couldn't win against Kramnik, which won twice in the match. The Berlin was the ¨drawing¨ weapon against Kasparovs ¨winning with white¨ style, but none(!) of the Berlin games played in the WC match was boring!
