My Insipid Opening

Dec 20, 2009, 12:48 PM |

If you play a game against me, you'll invariably witness what one chess friend called my "insipid" opening.  There are other aspects to this opening, but one aspect more commonly visited against lower-rated opponents is shown in this game, in which black makes a mistake on only the third move of the game, in this case leading to a quick resignation after move 11.

I realize that if I want to beat higher rated opponents I'll probably have to study other openings as white, but for now I'm comfortable with this.
