It is such an illogical opening it carries the benefit of surprise; meaning your opponent is surprised that you should be so stupid as to use it.
I don't understand the stratgy behind this opening,can anyone explain to me please.
following Madhing, very few chess players would play Qh4 there even if they are copycats.
almost every opening is winning when copycatting.
Nf3 isn't a 3rd chance of drawing or losing, but metagame players (if that's the correct term) are driven away due to its early win-loss record. Nf3 might be bad (it shouldn't), but it isn't a forced loss
Sodium Opening, Na! only just noticed
This is effective, the opening just transposes to a queens indian when played properly
I will try
Following moves is not professional
this puts knight on the edge of the board, making it way less effective
can someone explain this to me?
Q move for black on move 5 is unrealistic, no person would throw a queen out there for free, not even ray charles.. the correct move on move 5 is g6, then followed by f5, White will suddenly realize he's lost multiple moves of tempo, plus the black knight is guarded well by the pawn, the white knight will be impotent, and the queen left dodge 2 moves ago, and if she's on f3 by any chance (so galant in the no longer threatning the F-file), all she's doing is blocking the kings knight from good development.. this sodium attack is something you show beginners, any medium rated player would crush it
wrong!! Na3 follows e5
this is a bad opening
