PawnAvalanche

After 2... a6? 3. Bc4! would net White with a clear advantage.

I played jetfighter13 and he played this opening and I crushed him, but I think it was because I'm a superior player.

That doesn't say very much. I've seen his "analyses" and they make me want to cry.

but then black could take the center with the moves shown in the diagram

thus the position above is not hopeless


after 16... Rb8 why not Nd7 forking the rooks?

Here is one of my Game, on this pact,- 1.e4 b5 ...*

Polish Counter Gambit - Sounds Good wink.png

For this I've been awarded, Killer Pawn (Fun One) - You delivered checkmate with a Pawn!

I'm just saying. Polish Defense is mostly for d4, not e4. Because this move does not control the center and even if black fianchettos the bishop it is still not great and white has strong compensation. White has a bettter position. If someone gives you a center: take it.

2...a6 is not the right way to play it. The bishop should go on the b7 square first. Otherwise it's litteraly useless.

Played a lot of blitz with the line above lately. It's pretty fun.

BEN/ not trying to be negative here, if you like this opening you should turn your attention to the st. george defence 1..e6 2..a6 followed by b5  this is much better/ the game position you gave was dead lost period.

Ben_Dubuque

Eh Look at when I posted this originally. I never play this crap anymore

 

SpiderUnicorn

This crap just gives up a free pawn for zero compensation. Why are there even threads about garbage like this. Advocates of this rubbish ought to be ashamed of themselves. Disappointing. 

Ben_Dubuque

I was a much worse player when I thought about this line, so please forgive my youth

Basman has occasionally played it agaisnt weaker players like expert level, and has won! but Basman has a gift for making modern art in the chess board with pieces all over the place and not knowing who is better.

its a bad opening, no way around it, just because a legend like basman can play it agaisnt non-masters (or very weak masters) doesnt mean its any good. Its just a testament to his skill
