So hello everyone! This is my first blog post. I'm not an extraordinarily amazing chess player, but I do have some nice ideas and stuff that I feel like others would like to read about. I read an article not too long ago, about an opening that was coined the "Orangutan" opening. The opening is a bit odd, giving white early expansion on the queenside as opposed to immediately taking the center. I've had nice success with it, it takes people out of the loop immediately and can bring along some nice tactics. Here is a game I played on Xbox Live.
Not my best game at all. In fact that was one of the hardest games I had to play against with the Orangutan. My opponent, although a few of their moves made no sense, was smart enough to cut off my plans from the beginning. Let's look at one more game, one where the opponent played a bit differently.
