Hypermodern theory, the slow (cowardly), conservative (unoriginal), cautious (indirect), and tricky (fillintheblank) systematic undermining of the opponent's openings and plans via solid (conservative) pawn structures and long range (indirect) influence has finally been put to rest! With the clever use of only one piece!
Remember, chess is mental war! Win their mind and you've won the game!!
Pretty much the exact same thing has been done.... on here... not too long ago no less. But I chuckled.
Hey that's my first time seeing it, and I laughed incredibly hard. Thank you for this!
"And white is clearly winning due to black's lack of a plan to undermine"
yeah i enjoyed that as well :P
Black would easly win this game. I could beat someone easy if they just did that
But how, it's obvious white has the advantage.
For any new players, this is sarcasm. I am making fun of assassin2142 inability to recognize humor. This would silly of white to do, please, do not try it...
You are an idiot. Not only is your point incredibley stupid, but you tried to be funny by saying 'using only one piece', and you used both knights.
It has a weakness!!!!!!!
black can always try destroying himself if white doesn't have anything good to undermine.
I think White has the advantage because he hasn't weakened his position with useless pawn moves like Black has
haha, I had no idea people still read these ^^
You're awfully pretty for a chess player, are you sure you're real? =P
lmao good stuff here. :)
But hypermodern openings still lead to interesting games...
black would see your plan and undermine your anti-undermining.
I should post puzzles and stuff ^^ brb
Can we call this the crocodile opening? The 'possum?
haha, sure :P
it's kinda lame but I posted a puzzle anyways. I realized once I started the topic that I had no tactical problems in mind at all so I stole a game I recently finished <.<
I once saw two players play a game with this opening, white won (even though black was the more respected player):
How? Was black rated 900?
