well deacon that is why ia asked for a discussion of Nf3
I think Nf3 is the move here. We should take this seriously, and if we really want to we ccan easily overpower Ke2 votes. However to be fair I have to count all votes, but if I see someone posting clear blunders I might disreguard them
i think since its just the opening going ahead and voting is ok, but when we get into places where there are many choices, kibitzing and teamwork will be necessary to win
2. c3 is much more quiet, but still good. We should try to avoid lines that will require a lot of tactical analysis, or would tactics be a strength of ours?
good point browni, we might want to avoind tactics against a computer. The sicilian normal may be an advantage to Houdini he must have planned this against us 0.0
only accepting votes in red
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
we have to remember that Houdini isn't using an openings book, meaning that if we dont go out of book, he will
@PatzerLars: if u want an antisicilian , c3 has already 2 votes . We'll crush the mainlines!!
looks like we are having a division on c3 and Nf3
2.c3 3 votes CRUSH THE MAINLINES!!!!!
2.Nf3 2 votesHOUDINI WILL CRUSH US IF WE pLAY THIS!!!
2.Nc3 1 voteTHIS IS ALSo GOOD!!!
2.Ke2 1 vote
yeah, I just didnt expect such division on move two. The mainline theory is to play the best move and Houdini will go off lines, the c3 theory is to avoid tactical positions. A very interesting arguement, I'm curious to see how either plays out. I honestly want Nf3, but I'm witholding my vote, at least for now
@Roeczak nothing on Ke2?
I dont comment on silly moves :P
