When Theory goes bad
This is the first of two blog posts i hope to get up this weekend.
I have recently noticed a problem with my chess playing, the problem is as such, if i play a conventional opening ( sicilian dragon for example) i find early deviations very difficult to deal with even weak ones.
As such there are some very fun opening i cant really play anymore ( sicilian dragon and the semi slav mainly ( if anyone wants to play these against me in a thematic game they are more than welcome to challenge me))
As such i have chosen to new anti-theory openings( as black , 1 Nf3 does the trick as white and is very flexible)
The Chigorin Queens Gambit
These will back up my regualar ( and more competive) repetoire of
The French( both aggressive and more solid lines)
and more interestingly my Nf3 c4 lines ( berlin lopez , and hedgehog, when draws will do and Slav systems when they wont)
Here is a game to demonstate my earlier points about anti theory, this loss may have prevented my qualification to the second round of a team england tournemnet that i should really be competing well in.
And if anyone is interested this is what happens when you give me a game in the theory.
Thanks for reading
