    "This opening looks good. I'll try it. Cool name too. Na3. "Na". Probably why it's called like that."

    While this opening may seem bad - here is the correct way to play it. I have used this opening for a long time. It's not the best and takes long time to master - but still, it is definitely a great way to confuse your oponent, and get the oponent out the "opening book". You should definitely try this opening around the ELO ratings of 400 - 900. And if you master this opening, you can continue on using it - it's a great way to win. :)


    I have made a mistake in my diagram - on Be7 I said that white is trying to queenside - I meant kingside :P  Sorry

    This opening looks good. I'll try it. Cool name too. Na3. "Na". Probably why it's called like that.

    It should be named The Sodium Retreat.

    The purpose of the Sodium attack is to lock the center control for both white and black or eliminating those pieces that they control the center just like in Hippopothamus opening and hoping that White can gain a little bit advantage in momentum which, black do not have a chance to counter attack in an end game because the center is lock or they are no pieces that they control the center. Na3 is a temporary move. They are few choices in a second move for black. Can black allow Na3 to go at C3? or Can Black do Bf8xa3? Laughing

    i dont see any advantages on this opening. where is the theory of controlling the center? perhaps i didn't catch up the idea.

    I believe a decent concept lies in maneuvering the knight to c2, where it will maintain the pawns on the queen's side.  That is provided the knight isn't traded for black's dark-square bishop.

    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

    This is effective, the opening just transposes to a queens indian when played properly
