Alternate name for this opening is the braveheart attack.
LOL "my favourite chess player Napoleon Bonaparte"
Ok I have a new opening:
Inspired by my favorite chess player: Albert Eienstein
I think you are right that it is a new opening, but you should start your own thread to get at least the acknowledgement from the 7 million chess.com members. It is a number to start with. Now can other people run away with your idea and gain eternal fame as the invintor of that miraculous opening. Of course, you will have to play a lot of games with this opening to discover all its beauty and traps. :-)
May I advise you to play those games unrated?
1 d4 d5
Name of the opening: "The efeminated king bitchslap"
in the first 10ish moves you want to castle, not prevent castling totatly!
That made me laugh. In blitz you can often win with such openings mostly for the psychological effect and the time on the clock. It can throw opponents off and have them become more relaxed. It helps if you have a sharp tactical vision cause then you can get them when they thought they have a won game.
!! Macer75... You've found the one move order that is a forced win from white no matter what black plays. You should be looking for more than it being named after you :D
2. Ke! Man I am still shaking. Great idea I guess. I am not good enough to judge a future GM but this Ke2 looks right. Didn´t read the whole threat, did you find a good answer? I would say you ask some of the old guys how to name it. Maybe you ask "kings-indian-attack"-guy how he got his name into it or "queens-gambit-declined"-guy.
Ke2 here wins outright. After
well, I can't say how many bullet games I've won with similar openigns...
What white achieves after that g3 attack is QXE4!! CHECKMATE!!!!!!! By black's queen.
I got 5 consecutive wins using this opening (or the black variation of it):
I think you're onto something here...
Or it could just be that Black is stupid in each case. Take the last one, just because you see something done doesn't mean you should do it and doesn't make it a good thing. Playing 2...Ke7?? is like joining the Republican party. That strategery doesn't work!
Ah yeah that last one was just me playing against a friend who had just been watching me win with it so we were just messing around.
And yeah, it just goes to show that openings really don't matter in the slightest in the lower rating sections, when instead stuff like hanging pieces determines the games :P
Yeah, when you're rated over 1600 playing people around 800, it's no surprise you can win with any opening.
Bush does not represent the entire Republican Party.
