Who Cares what black does, this opening is quite hard to get. But when you get it. You have a good chance of winning
I agree...! Great information for beginners! If you can get your pieces to this "Full Control" position of the center, your game has very good chances for victory!
If you could get that position, you have good winning chances. But black might easily avoid it(starting d5 stops the e4 pawn already). Alekhine's gun might be a bit easier.
I DON'T PROFESS TO BE GREAT AT CHESS AND FAR FROM IT, BUT I AM
OPEN TO LEARNING MORE TACTICS AND STRATEGY WITH WHICH TO CONTROL
THE CENTER. I LIKE IT AND WOULD GIVE IT A TRY IF I COULD
YOUR KING AND QUEEN PAWNS ARE OUT, DEVELOPMENT IS GOOD
THE KING IS CASTLED AND THE QUEEN IS NOT IN FOREFRONT BUT BACK UNTIL
NEEDED, YOUR BISHOP IS COVERING BLACKS F7 PAWN WHILE YOUR OTHER BISHOP COVER C 7 PAWN AND YOUR KNIGHTS ARE DEVELOPED, BLACK IS NOT DEVELOPED , BUT THIS IS FROM A BEGINNERS POINT OF VIEW
In fact, it is impossible to get to this place. With white castling, white has seven moves. That means at least one black knight would have to still be out.
But there is much center control by white if black allows it to get anywhere near this position!
