Nxe5 Qe2 Not bad!
It's setting up a strong point. Fianchetto the bishop,a d6/e5 pawn chain and you've got something a little like a kings indian.The plan is to carefully turn the center into a clenched fist.
A Greek IM has won many games as black playing that.
Of course it not such a bad move, but if white knows what he's doing he will get some regular advantage without much effort.
Bad defense, moves queens very early, not have development and white with 3.Nc3 threat play 4.Nd5.
Dzindzi said that this is an offbeat opening that cannot be refuted
looks very interesting to me. seems like it shuts down Ng5 i like it
Not a good defense.It seems that many amatuers lst their queen easily in this defense.Negative development.
I take it you mean the queen
I've done The McConnell defence but never this one.
not smart because it puts the king in the middle
I know it traps the kingside bishop, puts the king and queen on the same file, and it's a pretty weak way to develop, but for some reason, it looks like something worth trying...
