does not understand ;(
@Pikongthegreat - 1.g3 is played by the likes of Nakamura, Ivanchuk, Morozevich, Kamsky, Grischuk, Svidler. Those guys are all 2700+
g3 is a hyermodern opening, so a decent amount play it. It is sort of like the King's Indian Defence for white and because the King's Indian defence is good for black, why not play it with white?
this opening is not applicable in major tournament for black could really penetrate the center squares
Thank you rukja.
I'm learning so any tip is welcame... : )
Hungarian opening is awesome. b3 or g3 are good moves, but you have to castle IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!
Benko beat Fischer with this opening, so it can't be bad.
get a diamond to get better AJAYDEWANGAN
im a begginer...anyone can give me tips on how to get better in chess...
The h and f pawn will become weaknesses if white castles king side, though white should have enough play to not allow those weaknesses to be exploited.
This is also an opening for the King's Indian Attack Bobby Fisher used to use a lot.
in light of things I have been told and/or heard from professionals, I find many of these comments to be really strange. "if you play this right and your opponent doesn't recognize it, you win" really? in a game having a time limit of 20mins or longer, I don't think this sort of thing would scare me, even though i wouldn't "recognize it"
I use it all the time, however, ones whom know how to attack it "very few" victory comes fast for them. other players spend alot of time trying to figure it out while I assasinate the nights and bishops. No pawn war here, if you play it right your a winner, one wrong move and your on the defense!
I have't played chess since university and when I started on Chess.com I was 2-6, then I started using this opening and have racked up a 13-1 record since then. If you set it up and your opponent knows how to defend it, it will be a great game. If your opponent doesn't recognize this opening you will beat him every time.
