Conversly at move 46 for black, white had just made a mistake by pushing pawn. Why doesn't black biship take e4? White can't take back or black snatches his rook. Instead Black chose to force an exchange of queens which was a horrible move. From my perspective, this middle game by both was incredibly sloppy. at least from what I went over but I'd love for input.
I'm looking at Alekhine vs Chris lane and at move 46 why does white queen take G5? If Black queen takes D4. White Queen just goes E7 and the game is all but over. In fact, I see no way at all white doesn't win once he takes G5
learning the best way
very bore opening
Probably the best game I've ever played and it was accomplished with the Z.
I can't add to much but as a new player and trying to learn new openings, what happens if the other player moves another piece. I got a lot to learn lol. Probably why I loose most my games
haven't tried, is it good?
That opening is very good, but I get tired of it...
I use this oppening in this form:
1. Nxf3, 2.Pxe4 , 3.Bxe2, 4. Pxd3 5.Nxd2 6. O-O
¡Por favor, sea relevante, útil y agradable!
I am living 15mins walk from The Brompton Cemetery where Zukertort has been buried...
The stat chart to the right serves very little or no purpose. Remember that transpositions are taken into account in many chess games, and once the openings transposes to another, it belongs in another category for rating and measurement.
1 c4 c5 2 Nf3 Nc6?????
Most English players play the opening using 1.Nf3 and 1.c4, so 1... c5 is normal. I find that after I play 1... c5, if they don't play the English, they are less good than those who continue along the English.
*** Do not misinterpret***
I say that, purely from a statistical perspective of my games as Black, when I faced White players who do not continue along normal English lines after 1.Nf3 c5, they have been easier opponents, than those who do play along English lines. That has just been the history with me.
Everyone's experience is different.
It is very very odd to see a 1.e4 player end up in a Sicilian after 1.Nf3 c5 2.e4. That has happened to me 2-4 times EVER. I play Sicilian as Black.
