1. e4 e5
With 3.e5, white furthers her development of the center by pushing a pawn twice towards the center. If 3... Qe6, then 4. RaB8!! and it will be hard for black to make drawing chances.
Well, this one is definitely not playable.
Put the pipe down, and back away slowly !
Perhaps the Bongcloud Opening would be more your speed.
Better would be 3.d5! attacking the knight. A continuation might be 3...Ne7 4.Nxe5 c6 5.dxf7#.
After 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 e5 isnt even possible and neither is 3 d5 ..... are y'all high or what ?
Sniffing too many newly-varnished chess boards. It's tough to stop once you've started, so just say "No!", kiddies.
I like 1.e4 Nd9
It throws my opponent every time. Immediate victory.
I'm not sure E5 is possible. Try going into the ruy lopez or scotch game. Both are good
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. e5?! e5! and black has a pretty comfortable game. White probably has to retreat his pawn.
But black is already on e5. I think you meant 3...e4!, which preserves the pawn symmetry and attacks the knight on f3.
Lol this is impossible!
How does this guy have a higher rating than I do?
That's crafty, but there was a refutation that came out of Slovenia a couple of years ago.
lol, yes a pawn retreat is probably white's best bet at this point
This is like the time I declared that it was M. Taupe in the broom closet with the Slap Chop.
Guys, you got it all wrong. You must play this:
1.e4 e5 2.Ke2! Nc6 3.Kf3!
Black generally gives up at the sight of the white king trying to checkmate black.
Yes the word groundbreaking is literal when describing the square under the e5 pawn
i like to open 1.e4 e5 2.dxe8, it's very useful at lower levels, I don't play it at the first move to have some sort of surprise, i'm very disappointed to don't ever see this in grandmaster chess
Is that throwing the knight in his lap? that might hurt him enough to retire. But this guy is unbeatable, watch him win with Rxa7 every time:
It doesn't seem like the knights are really contributing.
Better would be:
1. e5 e5
2. e5! e5?
3. e5?!! (threatening 4. e5! e5, 5. e5+!!)
3... e5 (preparing 4... e5, 5. e5? e5!! 6. e5 e5!!!!, winning for black)
4. e5! e5!!+
5. e5?! (paving the way to push e5)
5... e5 (the only way to delay white's push on e5 is to occupy it first)
6. e5+!!! (and things aren't looking so good for black)
