better name is like it or likhit.
likhit1...in checkers, there is a version of it where you purposely try to lose. This opening you invented looks like the chess version of that. Since Black could have captured white's rook but chose not to.
Capturing the rook gives white a clear advantage as black has given up the bishop pair and the rook on h3 wasnt doing much anyway.The bishop pair is far more important.
So, you should be forced to resign when you are down in material? Is there even a valid argument against it?
Really you should just be forced to resign if you are playing with the black pieces.
The mods should be forced to lock this stupid topic ^_^
I agree, it has been basically settled anyway, by consensus. All thats left are drive-by trolls arguing against it.
Only hope now then is to get one of them to swear, talk politics or religion?
Then the whole thing can be laid to rest.
f*** all false prophets.
Not all of them, just the ones opposing abortion.
