Some weeks had passed and Felix had made some experiences with his new opening move 1. b3. He had bought a book according to this opening system and had tried it online in several games. It was not a glowing love but a modest satisfaction.-

He had tried it also in some normal games, but he got several times in  confusion with move orders and plans."O.K," he thought,"I need some structure!" And so he started to write down his opening repertoire with 1.b3


A) 1.b3 against d5/e5 set-up

(idea: black occupies the center, white attacks it)

 

 

1. b3 e5 2. Bb2 Sc6 3. e3 d5 4. Bb5 Bd6 5. f4

 

 


Now the variation devides into three branches:

A1) 5. ... f6 ( stabilizes the pawn in center )

 

A2) 5. ... Qe7 (protecting the center pawn)

A3) 5. ... Qh4+ ( provoking the advance of the g-pawn)

"Well, enough for today," he thought, and saved it in his repertoire database. Then he closed the window and went for a cup of coffee.
