I hate to use this opening...I did'nt know how to use it...
HaveAnotherGame, I play against Shredder and it uses this d5 move a lot.
It's the Scandinavian Defense. Just put "chess e4 d5 Wiki" and you'll see.
I do 2. e4xd5 and then comes the black Queen on her own. She can create a lot of problems, but not with d5. If she moves too much, she looses time. Then comes a bishop and it may sacrifice to open my defense, etc.
It is a good move if preparing to castle
I get it. All 4 bishops are on the same colors.
Here is a diagram from the Chess federation I saw in the tournement place just before the first round was about to start
I'm getting back into chess after getting decent, about 750, and I'm trying to learn more strategy. I tried this opening and I want advice on the game.
Played this opening qnd got a really interesting mate!
Thanks for telling this opening-attack is good for beginners. I will give it a good try and study it with care. I started to study THE LONDON SYSTEM, which has some similarities, but this one is more compacted, with more pieces placed at strategic points,more able to defend, it seems.
You're right. This is a nice opening. But, I just want to know has anyone had problems with d5?
Nice opening moves, specially for beginners as it solves the centre complicacy as well.
King's Indian Attack vs d5. Has anyone ever had trouble with playing the King's Indian Attack with this move? It seems initially, there is focus on the e4 square. But the counter center pawn or d5, seems to change the Opening System enough to keep it from being a familiar position.
On move 11. Qc3 ...why did black not follow with NxQ?
Not always. I won a tournement game yesterday at the Peoria Academy Finals with it
By looking at white's board position, it seems that the king is defended well in an aggressive matter because his pawn on g3 protects further ahead. Also the bishop protecting the king has a longer attack and defense. He still has the knights to move around quickly and pick pieces or further board development.
DUDE ONE OF THE KING INDIAN DFENCE WHITE MOVE IS GONE WHY ??
