2nd game turn 15 you had a checkmate.
I asked without thinking I could seek... I found one called Queens Gambit Gurus... i applied. waiting. Played two good games though I blundered one, but I had strong opening. I'm going to reflect on later... both Blitz. I don't have time to create here, but will post link, for both.
Both good QG games.
http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=744974131 Accepted, went my way, til I blundered on 13, when I should of taken Q. Finally lost.
http://www.chess.com/livechess/game?id=744983367 They didn't even have a typical opening. Good game here, though I made mild blunder near end, post poned my checkmate. Still won.
A quick search brings up a few... =/
Very true! Good point. Thanks.
Of course, playing any opponent, never know their skill level, just gotta play to the best of your own ability, and when they make that mistake... WE ALL DO!!... capatalize on it!
Is there a group for the Queen's Gambit??
congrats, but all that really shows is what can happen when your opponent isn't studied on the opening and makes blunders. Due to this being so common I find people tend to know it just as well as I do if not better.
I love this opening. Love it. I play it all the time. Varily rarely I lose. though I do with a common response mentioned by UnsuitableUniverse few back.
btw... when they accept right away, I first move e4. This opens threat on lone pawn w B. the e4 is double active; as its taking control of center, and threatening the pawn. The Bx move is Double active as its developing and capturing.
To the Bb4 move that UU mentioned, if it works out, I like to Check w Qa4+, though some see my double active, block with Kn and Gaurd B... sometimes I can work it out and still gain peice...
BUT. I love this game I posted below. Queens Gambit accepted... a 10 min blitz game. After he took gambit, and I took center board with my e4 move. He took about 2 min thinking. when I said something, and he finally moves, he says... "your going to need the extra time" and I busted him wide open.
This opening is a very powerful opening and when someone plays d4 against me I like to play Nf6 then when they play c4 I play e6 and then finally when they play Nc3 I play Bb4 and have a good game. I like when they accepted and I don't like it as much if they decline it but I still like it. I don't like if the don't play d5 back at me. The Queen's gambit is sometime not even called a gambit because a trap that black can fall into prevents black from defending the pawn. You don't have to play Nc3 when they accept it because they're is no dangerous Queen check. I LOVE this opening along with the Giuoco piano and the Fried Liver attack. I hope you learned something!
Played against 2... Be6 today. Terrible response, and here's a great example of the trouble you can get into playing it.
Here's a Queen's Gambit: Accepted game. I played this game on a 10 min timer ea player, on Live chess. Never more than ONE point difference entire game. Using tactical objectives, I gained advatage, and maintained throughout. With QG:A, get control of center board, block and take Castle away, and trade down peices even Q.
@Da Boss2018... better move if they accept (take gambit) is e4 pawn, not only gain complete control of center (a tactical objective), but your bishop has threat on pawn. if pawn moves forward, than your knight captures, to develop. that way, either peice is double active, developing/capturing.
I like Nc3 after black takes
A very common opening.
I bought a new book... "How to play the Queen's Gambit" and it's very intriguing.
To Glyn-O... look it up on Amazon, or go directly to supplier site, The Chess Store, chessstore.com, they are in OR. Very good book written by renowned World champion years ago, Chris Ward, who studdied this open, and most tactical responses from Black, including the QGA, QGD, the Slav and a few others. Helps understand most responses of black, and shows a lot of games in Chess history, including those dating way back, aswell as recent, and again, includes these in book. If you are black and play someone who knows how to play the Queen's Gambit, your in trouble. If you are white, and You know how to play it, you have an advantage... almost every time. This goes to everyone.
Always use this one even when i'm playing black
The King's Gambit interests me more but has losing percentages for white by the third move! I guess I will stick with this.
I came on this opening move, Quenns Gambit, searching for the name of a move I often used b4. I just wanted to praise this opening for all its worth by showing everyone the game I first used it on. It was the second time I played the guy. The first time was months and months ago, and I won, sense than, he was listed as my highest victory rating, 1386. Till a couple days ago, playing this game, he started at 1400+, and was 1451 when I defeated him. I am only around 1224. Heres the game, if I copy/pasted the right thing.
I'm a player of medium skill, and this is definitely my favorite opening. Allow me to sing its praises: If black accepts the gambit, playing 3.e4 simultaneously grabs space at the center and creates a revealed attack on black's pawn from the king-side bishop. Black can get in even more trouble by attempting a futile defense of the stranded pawn. Placing a knight at c3 prevents the pawn from advancing, and attacks b5, which could otherwise be used to defend it. Even if black lets his pawn go, white has a stranglehold on the center of the board. It seems to me that it's best for black to decline the pawn, but even then, white's got extra pressure on d5, which can threaten to undermine black's pawn structure. Sometimes opponents will delay accepting the gambit, only to try to rid themselves of the offending pawn around move 5 or 6, with similar results as if they had taken it immediately.Basically, sacrificing the pawn offers the opportunity to play e4 with the revealed bishop attack. This is a potent move- one of those coveted moves that accomplishes multiple objectives at once. For an intermediate player, having such a powerful move scripted on turn 3 is a great way for white to gain control of the center of the board quickly. Less skilled players will quickly rue having gleefully snatched up the pawn. Even against advanced players, who can fend off your assault, you can come out even and well-developed for the middle game.Well, that's how I see it, anyway. :)
c4 is a sacrifice for developement which is easily retaken
