The idea of this opening is to attack the queenside immediately, now that we have better understanding of chess we know that in the opening we should achieve building our centre. This is not a modern day opening.
Funny how all the comments I read saying the opening is "dumb" or "not worthy" were written by users with a rating of 1400 or less.
Sodium Attack is not Revoliution-i am not understand with yuo...J.PR.
I think you guys are missing the merits of this great attack: it prepares for a lot of things; kind of like a prophylactic opening. namely, by moving the knight, white can play for Rb1 and b4 followed by a rook-lift at some point. furthermore, the knight occupies both the b5 and c4 squares, which he may jump to at any moment
all in all, very powerful sharp opening!
I have seen a lot of openings but this one comes in last. DO NOT PLAY
horrible. No center control, a knight on the rim, backing up nothing, attacking nothing. I just don't get it.
the real surprise in this opening is that white has gone 4-0-1 with the sodium attack!
The crazy Sodium is:
revolution in chessssssss!!!, jajaja
NA = sodium, hence the name...
Na3 should technically be called sodium 3 attack
I invent a new opening! The moves are as follows: 1. Na3 e5 2. Rb1 Ke7 3. Nh3 Nf6 4. Rg1 Ne8. It will be called the Sodium-Rubidium Attack: Neon Defense Castle Gambit!
It's called the sodium attack because the chemical symbol of sodium is Na
d5 or e5 after Na3. AT LEAST move the white knight to c3. And who calls a opening a element? The sodium attack only is white exchanging colors with black, theoretically.
Lots of comments like "knight on rim is grim". But remember the knight starts on the rim... And by moving to a3 it is closer to the center than it is on b1.
nice opening,if youre playing a friendly game, using both of the knights and e3 to really put power to d4, after playing d4.
who invented this dumb opening, who ever did, he/she must be gone in the brain to think this will work?!
i get it: Na3 ;)
this is just kewl! i'll give it a try.
It's NOT the sodium attack, it's the SODUMB attack! This sounds like something Carlsen would go ahead and play to confuse his opponent, which MAY WORK.
