BTP, that Bishop sacrifice is such a crucial weapon in the arsenal of every player that it has a name. It's often called the Greek Gift, or the Trojan Bishop sacrifice. It can show up in the French, the Nimzo-Indian, the Queen's Gambit, and other variations. This case is a bit unusual because white hasn't played Nf3 yet and because of the strength of white's g4.
Yereslov's game is very interesting, but so is Pfren's challenge to it. It's well worth analysing, but not with engines. Use your own brains to work out what's going on and whether in the most critical lines white's attack is worth the material.
I don't think it could be employed in Grandmaster level games... Or can it?
It has actually been played by some very strong players-Beliavsky beat Anand with it and Shirov beat a strong 2450 with it as well-also Igor Ivanov drew Shabalov with it.
The h4 line is one of black's sharpest replies in the Winawer.
shame my memory is so bad somewhere i read its easier do keep the king save with too pawns then with three, shame i have forgotten the circumstances. That was very interesting thought. Im not sure i think it had something to do with the defensive move h5 for black in the sicilian. Damn my memory is so bad i forget all the interesting stuff.
How about you study the position first
You idiots do not seem to get just how complicated the position is...
Your rating is way too low to know what the best move is.
Analyze the position first, and then whine.
Stick with checkers, because the moves you mentioned are all blunders.
Let's be serious.
According to Rybka, your line isn't very good. Try again, Pfren.
Yes, and that explains your rather low rating
His actual rating is almost exactly the same as hiss ChessCube one, idiot.
lol i didnt even say it for pfren and i didnt even say it to critizise the op. No i ment in general as a side thought, maybe it wont apply here but there is really an interesting defensive idea were black can defend better with 2 pawns instead of 3. shame i have forgotten anout it.
Where can Black play h4 in the Winawer? I'm very confused by this post. Oh wait, the poster is an uninformed troll, nevermind, he just doesn't have a clue what he's talking about.
7.h4 in the Winawer is an interesting sideline. What is not interesting at all is the nonsensical moves posted by the OP.
Yes, but that's still White's move and not Black's...
So? Do you think Yereslov knows the difference?
Usually, in the Winawer Advance variations I've seen (with ...c4 as one of the moves), black castles queenside, swings the rooks over to the kingside, then tears open white's kingside, while white looks to break open in the middle.
Yereslov's chess skills as a player leave much to be desired for somebody who is trolling these forums by claiming that 2000+ players are low. It just disturbs me that a weak 1300 would judge experienced players without having any to show for himself.
I have seen some of your statements about other players here and in other forums, and calling other players to weak to understand the game is a normal thing for you.
Shame on you.
I'm one of those weaker players, but, based on ratings here, I'm better than the OP.
I'm not sure that you could realistically expect me to play all those moves for you.
If you want to write a script, become a playwright
Hah, you are nowhere near my level.
You are right, he is much stronger than you.
There's only about 100pts in it. That's +/- depending on how drunk he/me is
The french defence is bullcrap anyway.
funniest joke of the day, good april fools joke.
1- You Damiano line (#17) is completely lost for Black. I can take the white pieces against Anand using any software running on the NASA supercalculator and still win. Even maybe blindfolded.
2- Your original Winawer line is a joke. Why would Black castle on move seven when there is 7...Qa5 ? And what is your devilish plan after 8...h6 intending ...c4 ? And why would Black play 11...Qa5 when obvious defensive moves exist, such as 11...f6, 11...Ng6 and (weakest of the three) 11...Nf5 ?
So yes, a crushing opening against people that play stupid moves. I suggest for future investigation he following line :
Freaking hillarious man!!! ROFLOL!!! Can't ... stop ... lauging!! :D :D
