    No es una apertura broma, el gran maestro hungaro savon la utilizo en los años 70 con muy buenos resultados, ademas es un arma muy eficaz contra los que no estan familiarizados con esta captura del peón d4 con la dama, puede ayudar a ganar minutos preciosos, ademas de que suele producir juegos muy agudos, llenos de muchas sutilezas. Como arma sorpresa es muy efectiva, yo la he jugado en alrededor de una docenas de partidas, y si he perdido 3 juegos es mucho.

    OpeningGambit - apparently Svidler, J Polgar, Grischuk and Michael Adams disagree!

     White's queen can stay there for a while.

    once i played this opening ended with 9 move checkmate for white

    after checkhover, 4...Nc6 5.Bb5! Bd7 6.Qa5 a6! 7.Bc4 Ne5?!(the best move was b5 forking bishop and queen) 8.Nxe5 Bxa5?? 9.Bxf7#

    ever thought about that? twice it happened in my games, Ne5 was trying to fork my knight and my queen to make forced move Qb3 and black play e6, there is almost no development for black, and very dangerous doubled e file pawns, if you like this opening, then you are my friend, gg.

    I have found that this is the best opening to use against players unfamiliar with the Sicilian. After a few moves White can begin an unmerciful attack on Black's queenside.

    Joke? I'm playing a game with it now and it seems to play ok, most people push Nc6 reflexively and then Bb5 pins it. The only decent white response from there is Bd7 to break the pin, and letting white  swap his light squared bishop for the knight, and leaving the queen quite safe in the centre for a while (long enough to finish development).

     

    If black pushes Bd7 first, then there is a few safe retreat squares for the queen where she won't cramp whites development. And it's good for taking people out of their comfort zones early.

    i also think its null, against the principle of not taking the queen out in the opemimg stages of the game
