Though its unorthodox sometimes It confuses people, but it is a very weak move in my opinion if you look at grandmaster's and master games Do you ever see this? The answer is No. Its very rare, but I can tell you what you will see is The siclian, the French Defense, Caro Khan, Spanish Game, these are some openings that are more popular and I feel that if the best chess players in the business don't play this there's probably a good reason for it.
We call that the Suicide opening.
I don't think this opening looks very sucessful, that's why I never play it.
I don't like this opening because you don't control the center.
I just destroyed this opening! Checkmate!
I do not like this opening!
I may have used this once.
Could you play 2. e4 after 1. e4 to essentially transpose into a black opening for white?
1...Nf6 is not the wisest choice if you want to stop the rook. In the case of 1. a4 Black usually plays 1...e5. When White plays h4 then Black plays d5. The bishop will stop the rook from coming out.
I dont like it but it is not bad i tried it against the cumputer on 1200 and won in 56 moves
It probably is going to followed by b2 and then bishop to b1 in order to have queen side counter play and a threat through the center to the king side. d4 and c4 are candidates for disrupting black's center once the middle game has been reached.
now let me try this one also
That opening is a violation
I just played this game as black against the Ware.
I always play this...
