  • in addition to below, ...qb6 can facilitate ...bd7-b5 trading the bad bishop in some lines

  • If we are looking at the advance line Qb6 supports the pawn chain and also attacks whites chain.

  • Looking at that line using Kf8 if white uses Nf3, f5 is a good attacking line and takes white out of his kingside attack. Also if white goes dxc5 black goes Bxc5 but the queenside pin is removed ........ Just some thoughts. In this line with King on f8, yes you forfeit castling but white is in for a war he may not be ready for. Sorta like the king's gambit bishop gambit variation with colors reversed. It is a line I use a lot in the K G a lot with good results. Message me if you are intereste

  • Long term 1...e5 player considering switching to the French, due to some advantageous lines I've found for Black in the Armenian variation after Qg4/...Kf8. Can anybody point out good resources for me in this line (3.Nc3 Bb4 4.e5 c5 5.a3 Ba5) -- thanks in advance

  • I finally figured out how to get a PGN, but I don't yet think you can see games you have played in the past.
