Its an eehhh Opening
greco_morphy plays this opening
oh ya this opening is good and bad
This openning is sometimes passive, but if we use the following variation, it could be so stimulating and active. Look that:
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.
If this is bad, chess is a win for white - RetiJunior
I agree and find some players are easily confused!
@wackwow - Well, according to chessgames.com, he played a4. If chesstempo says he played a3, then I think one of the sites must have got it wrong.
Pretty good if you want to try some black openings reversed. And a3 is a pretty common move in some opennings.
I play the Anderssen sometimes to get the White Scandinavian :)
really chesstempo says he played it...
@Wackwow - He didn't play this. He played a4 and still won
Magnus played it...
