This Opening is very tactical' attacking the center and forcing the black king to play defence.
play this every game
a nice fianchetto
I don't get it, what does it do, other than maybe help develop the bishop
Grandmaster Larsen is often played b3 very successful
Nice video but it's only about 1.Nf3 > 2.b3. He underestimates White's chances after 1.b3 e5.
A nice video on the Nimzo-Larsen:
Here are my numbers with b3. (through 9 games).
Thanks pumpupthevolume247, you convinced me to try it and I love it!
not bad thats all
i love it, it so flexible
This is the BEST OPENING ever! I also recommend the Ruy Lopez aka Spanish Game.
I really hate playing against this opening. Although I have won my only OTB game against it
I have succeeded many times with this opening but I have to get into have to play Nf3 first for a safer game
its like you are playing with the black pieces, and you are swearing him to take control of the center.
It's not a really good to use. but it's not to bad so I respect your opinion
This is THE best opening in chess... I have won countless online games with it and it is my no.1 OTB weapon with the white pieces - I blog ALL my rated games, I haven't lost a single game with 1.b3!
