We did'nt appreciate this opening because it's only depend on the player who play this opening.
Vs. computer @1200 just pulled this on me. I won, but wouldn't it have taken rook on move 16, the noob I am would have had a harder time.
bad, really bad.
If you play this then it is almost like you want to lose. As for black, e5 would be a way better response than d5 because then white can just play f4 and turn himself into black which his position is not so bad anymore. If black responds e5 though, white has nothing to do. He could turn it into the Fred Defense ( which is e4 f5 for black) but the Fred is also very bad.
This isn't opening. This is shit.
the worst opening move is probably h3 or nh3
its not as bad as everyone thinks. its extremely passive. as mentioned before, it can almost always lead to a reversed dutch game (if you wish.)
But if you want to play the dutch defense, why not just play black???
This is a BAD openning!
I saw a 2000 rated player talking about this opening at a local tournament, he said every time he played it he lost. >.
@Greymiles : It is called the barnes opening.
Not very good move for high ranking games.
hmm.. dangerous opening
I thought this was called the "Barnes Opening".
if someone is planning for o-o-o castling
Easily known as the poopbucket!
It's not that good. I think it entends Nh3 Nf2 etc.
Despite being named by Wikipedia "White's worst opening move", I find that it's fine to play with.
