i have made up this opening. The idea is that u get a openfile with ure rook on the kings side so when he castles ure automatically attacking the weak square. All u need for checkmate is to place ure queen in front of ure rook and move to the weak square. Give ure thoughts on this opening and tell me whether it's affective or not.
note:this is just an example
This opening is pretty bad as it weakens the kingside, does nothing for development and fails to seize the center. As per rule, if one player starts early operations on the wing, the other should get a good game with playing in the center. It's pretty much like shooting yourself in the foot then trying to run a marathon. Not that it's not possible, but something like this might happen with correct play by black:
u said that the king side is weak well.... why don't u just castle queen side and for get attacking the centre with ure pawns and attack it with ure knights and bishops.
Aren't all openings made up?
lol.good point. When I say that this opening is made up that means that the opening doesn't have a name,(like kings gambit or ruy lopez)
Well I say instead of asking people what they think just use it in some games and see what happens!
I have......... and it works pretty well I'm just asking whether people think i should use a different opening (with a name),the weaknesses and pros of using the opening and whether i've just been lucky to win using this opening or that it is a great idea and should be given a name
Its a horrible idea, but I play 2. Ke2 and I do alright. At our level we can play crazy openings and get away with it, enjoy it while you can!
Black has at least two better options as soon as move 3, so instead of making up an imaginary game that runs twenty-odd moves, a little more early in-depth analysis might help.
Also "you", "your". Learn it, love it, live it.
k thanks for the tip
Moving your wing pawn three times is extremely committal, so I don't really understand why you're doing it right off the bat even before your opponent has committed to castling to the king's side. Black can just castle queen's side, at which point the half open h file isn't so threatening. As long as black knows what he is doing, he will take the lead in development while you take your time pushing the h pawn up the board.
Aside from breaking most opening principles, your opening simply lacks flexibility. You should hold off on pushing the wing pawns too far up the board until you know what your opponent's plan is.
yeah welll.....u may say that Ken's mom but i've currently just beaten a 1600 blitz chess player on live using that exact opening. :( I think that just because an opening has many flaws good oponents don't know how to defend it so it's a surprising attack.
Getting into the habit of playing poorly on purpose isn't a good strategy for improvement.
In blitz you may play practically anything against sub1800 opposition and get decent positions. That still doesn't make it a good idea.
blitz is always very different. I frequently give away my queen in blitz games and end up winning, it doesn't mean thats its a winning strategy to try...
Just to reinforce what the others were saying, you should test the opening in games that have longer time controls. The surprise factor alone doesn't necessarily make the opening viable in games outside of bullet/blitz. With standard time controls, strong players should be resourceful enough to find the right moves to gain an advantage fairly quickly, even if the opening is unfamiliar to them.
I'm glad that you're having success with the opening though. It's always fun to try new openings, and its especially rewarding when things go your way.
It's great that you have interest in finding your own opening ideas, but as a beginner you should first learn basic opening theory, tactics and endgames. Once you become stronger you will be able to create your own new opening ideas.
