    Then black moves his knight to a2 forking the rooks..

    The only move I see is Rxc7. And is h2 a very bad move? A bit of a waiting move and not so usefull. But is sacrificing rooks of any use?

    18...Na2 drops a piece after 19.Rxc7 Nxc1 20.Rxc1. Rec3 isn't a bad move, the rook is going there anyway after the queen recaptures.

    Na2 wouldn't be played because it loses a piece, and h2 isn't a legal move, I don't mind Rxc7 though, it's a logical move I suppose, I just see no rush to take, Rec3 should be worth thinking about.

    Ah I see now. If I was black I had lost a piece there :) And I meant h3, but perhaps g3 might be good so that the black knight cannot go anywhere? But  it seems not like the right time for that move, maybe later.

    Rxc7 would take the Queen to the c-file. Is that a good or bad thing?

    You are totally right nate23.
    1.d4 is always better than 1.e4 against a Chess Engine.

    Queen pawn openings are generally closed or semi-closed games.
    King pawn openings are generally open games.

    + that Queen Pawn Openings win Statistically seen 1,7% more Games than King Pawn Openings at that Time.

    Yeah, after e4? Houdini has it made

    The queen will have to move to b6 after 19.Rc3.

    here is the difference between the moves. Rxc7 gives us a the tempo, Rec3 gives black the tempo

    Unless black doesn't take, Houdini probably won't play rxc3, it'll play rac8 or something better. It's generally best to maintain the tension in a position, rather than just immediately taking, it's like 1.d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. cxd is never really played that much, because it's usually better to maintain that tension of pieces (or pawns). What does rxc7 immediately give us?

    it does give the open c file (But I k=do know what you mean by keeping the pressure)

    This may be a silly question.. but for which side is it better to keep the tension? (assuming that both players cant easily add new pieces in the equation)

  • 22 months ago · Quote · #479

    ChristianSoldier007

    like in the QG example, in many cases its beneficial for both sides to maintain the tension until its the proper time to break it. Knowing when to break it and when not to is difficult and a very advanced concept

    ok, then then I trust that chess.com will know when and my vote goes to Rc3.
