Game # 7: The Pusher
Feb 15, 2011, 8:51 AM 0
Welcome to game 7. I decided that I am going to refer to 1.d4,Nf6 2.d5 as
THE PUSH. The Dance of Osiris seems a little heavy handed and overly melodramatic. It is still my pet opening though. I will mostly post wins with it though I am sure to post some losses as well (there are plenty...)
Once again the purpose of this opening is to maintain a central intrusion and cramp black. In this game, I pass up a winning continuation and eventually win on time with even material.
My games are 5 minutes +5 Seconds per move. It is pretty much my only format as I feel that it is long enough for a strong game and fast enough that I can stay focused. I call this format "Speed Limit" after Sammy Hagar.
