Crazy opening?!?!?Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Bad idea. Gives black the initiative. Takes whites main advantage away and lets black take control of the center. I would never use this opening.
This is spectacular for someone who prefers to play black. Great psychological value against somebody expecting to play down tempo.
someone explain this to me
i still don't get this move
Other then preventing the bishop on b4 i think it is awful
Its an eehhh Opening
greco_morphy plays this opening
oh ya this opening is good and bad
I used the Anderssen once against a real life friend and got a win.
It is a good way to get rid of that nasty bishop on b4.
The reversed Scotch is actually a blunder:
This is kind of bad opening
You are right! Magnus plays a variety of openings (including anderrsons) so it is very difficult to prepare against.
I saw somewhere in the comments that Carlsen played this? Is that true
It is actually good. It stops the annoying pins. I think it is named after Adolf Anderson who was a strong chessplayer in the 19th century. And yes magnus does play a huge variety of openings. Anderson Opening, ruy lopez etc.
