Defense against Fried Liver and Counter Attack!

  • #1

    Block the bishop with the king or queen pawn and bring your horses out.

  • #2

    omg, finally a refutation to the fried liver

  • #3

    Why didn't decades of theory ever think of this?!!

    I'm not sure how you will block with your king pawn though, and your knights will already be out.

    I did hear TheBackyardProfessor had an excellent video on this defence.

  • #5

    Oh, the one where he is condemning "random 2 piece attacks" and responded to Qf3+ with Ke8 and after Bxd5 claimed he had a clear advantage. 

  • #6

    The problem is that there are plenty of noobs who take the Naughty Professor's videos seriously.

  • #7

    Let me be helpful for a change

    Thanks so much for the comments and for the two move by move variations on defense. Also blocking the bishop with the queen pawn not the king pawn seems a better idea.

  • #9

    It seems the only idea, pawns can't move backwards.

    I prefer just to play 3...Bc5 rather than Nf6 and avoid it entirely.

    It also has the advantage of being a legal move.

    I have also noticed that when i go for the fried liver attack first i am able to see how my opponent counters and quickly neutralizes the attack. Either that or I have a quick 4 move checkmate. For the record it has only worked once. Also i find that when i try fried liver my pieces dont get developed and i forfeit control of the center.

    That's a line from the Scotch gambit, It seems like white wins a piece on the spot but that's not the case, white has to give the bishop back to defend against black's threats.

    Either Bxg7 followed by Nxc3, or Nxc3 immediately

    I always thought moving that pawn forward was a good idea.
