tie between 0-0 and Be3
wait we cant castle
Be3 wins, voting now closed
Are you still with the previous move? 0-0 is possible.
Is my diagram in post 1 incorrect?
So sorry about that people! Don't know what I was analyzing... xD.
u forgot to input the moves 6.Bd3 Bd7 in post 1
I vote for 5.0-0
and that move wins
sorry guys ive been very busy lately wont happen again
So I was analyzing the right position... oh good! I just assume whenever something goes wrong it's my fault.
Not being pessimistic or nothing but we really need to get a few of the titled players on this sight on board because the minute we go out of the openings book we're going to get squashed!
yeah I agree we need some more strong players
OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: HOUDINI PLAYS 7...NG6. YOU HAVE UNTIL 8 AM TOMMOROW TO VOTE. ALSO, YOU HAVE BEEN FACING HOUDINI 32 BIT, I CHANGED IT TO 64 BIT. GOOD LUCK!
I'm going to wait for Twpsyn to see if we are still in theory, if we are not, I'm going to vote Na3.
Nbd2 with the plan of moving it to g3 via f1 so Re1 would be an required
Yes, still in theory but only barely.
The openings book is still persisting with a3 but this time with a 72.2% success rate (still not a big fan). [just to give you an idea of how far off the beaten track we are this statistic is taken from only 9 games]
Re1 (83.3% success [taken from 3 games])
Be3 (66.7% success rate [again taken from 3 games])
I think I'll have to start looking away from the openings book to my main database from here on in to see if there are any transpositions and so on. Who knows Batsford's modern chess openings might get taken off the shelf.
Na3 with that few games, we might as well be out of theory.
NOT because of the success rate(which is useless from 3 games)
i like this move
wow three way division and only three votes
83% success from 3 games?
2 wins and a draw perhaps?
Why hasn't Ivanov been banned yet?

Is the Caro-Kann the opening I was searching for or should I go for 1...e5 ?
