is it me or is this page not displaying correctly
heavyduty90, I am sorry but that 'puzzle' black plays like he has never played chess before.
i like h3 start for white. it's good for aggressive king hunts. gives the king a square to flee to in case back ranks are compromised. so far I've been kicking everyone's ass with it. all blunders aside. I got the idea to try this when the 1600 bot turned me out with it over and over again.
I tried this once and the conclusion is ?
the anderssen opening is better because it blocks the bishob from attacking the king but than light-squared bishob doesnt have any desire to quickly attack the queen before the knight is brought out so i thing it is a useful pawn but it should be played later, there is no haste to play it on the first move.
This is useless as i see it. Tell me if i am wrong
it is good
is this some kind of joke ?
people play these openings for the opening innovation prize. that's the only reason (besides they're fun to play in bullet :D
I don't get these openings starting with 1. a4, a3, h4 , h3? Anyone can explain?
I'm not a very good player. But there were moves by black that I did not understand later in the game. My feeling is (but I've only worked thru the game twice) that black gave away the game.
As far as h3, I often play h3 anyway, as a preparation to castle and also to keep my partners KKn and QB off g4. Seems like an unusual looking move that really leads to the same position. With in 3 or 4 moves at the most, it looks like a fairly normal e4 opening for a planned 0-0-0.
Remember that I'm not very good, please, and explain why this isn't a simple juxtaposition of moves leading to the same position.
OMG lol hahahahaha this oppenign is a fail
I'm not being rude, but just asking; what is the advantage of this move?
This is the Chuck Norris opening
Clemenz opening is bad, if the white King plans to castle on the King side early in the game, or in a middle of the game, however, if the combination of b2, fianchettoed bishop on the Queen side, d3, and for the future moves.. Castle on the Queen side...This opening is good, this is good for the players like to counter play as white; most of the times... The center game was often predictable, Unorthodox openings just like that, it looks like worst, but as long the game proceeds in the middle game or in the end game, nobody can predict about who is losing or who is winning. :)
strange to see black's success rate here.. that means master players never try unorthodox opening

It might look bad at first thought, but think about what you can do with it! No matter your opponent's move, you can play d4! Its like the potent scandinavian defense, except you have a nice method to block the enemy lightsquared bishop.
useful if U wanna play a reversed opening though definitely not as good as Anderssen's 1.a3
I think i'ts good!
Dear Mr. Clemenz, shame on me, but this is a time wasting move....
maybe you would perfer to play black.
