Destroy Black's Double Fiancetto Defense

Jul 19, 2014, 10:48 AM |

This is a game I'm very proud of. It wasn't that my opponent was particularly strong but that the opening used was one of those non-standard heavy pawn openings I've always had trouble with.

It isn't that I'd lose in these opening, or even lose the game more often. It was I KNEW that such an opening was bad, but not only could I not find a way to punish it, I often found myself wasting tempos retreating pieces as pawns started marching forward.

But this time I found a way to tear it apart! 

As my rating continues to inch its way higher I suspect I'll have fewer opponents that use such heavy pawn openings. So I'm glad I managed to beat it now.
