i need to lear this opening someone pliz recommend me a good book
I just trashed a guy 200pts higher than me and he used this opening.
qa6 and .........
As I am an old but not very good "duffer" you can take this comment for what ever you think it's worth.
For myself this is my opening of choice when playing white. And although there are a goodly number of opponets that have thrashed me good, it seems that I win more often against good players with this opening than any other that I have used. Because of that I have recently began a personal study of as many of the various 1.c4... opening lines as I can work up. (Of course not all 1.c4... openings are The English Opening but the variations are fun to study anyway.)
This opening is my favourite one for white. If 1.c4 d5 so 2. d4; if e5, it's just a simple game, that can be made more interesting by Nf3xe5 Nc6xe5 d4 and make a folk between the bishop(c5) and a knight(e3 move is done). C5 makes mirror game; b5=>cb and it can be dangerous after Qa4 and a knight c3 joining the attack. So it's the best opening which i found by the Genius.
the english open is one of bobby fischer's favorite move and he perfected it
good opening. I maked an exactely opening in a match 1 min bullet
The answer to the puzzle by batka 32 is Qh6+ gxh6 Bf6 mate.
i 've used this
This will now become my featured opening.White clearly has the advantage.
Its a great opening gives you alot of options and makes it easy to castle and stay off the defensive early on
amazing result for white
Too good for white.
i think this will become my favorite opening by far. just brilliant.
This opening is brilliant!!-it just depends on hw you play it, wat u do and wat ur oppoent is like.( such as its much easier 4 me 2 win with this opening if my opponent castles on king side.)..0o^
