ethiopian opening

sadkid2008

Hello all, I took a quick look at the name of the official chess openings and found that Ethiopia was vastly underappreciated. I am here today to give the chess players of Ethiopia the love they deserve.

 

Oftentimes white players may find the expectation of heavy aggression to be too great for their unsatisfactory testosterone levels. The Ethiopian Opening lets them resort to a more humble style of play that they might find more suitable.

You're a sadkid alright. I don't know which is more pathetic the opening or your comments.

No, wait....you're comments are way more pathetic.My bad.

Looks nice Sadie! I'm sure the citizens of Ethiopia will appreciate it.

perhaps the op has a point. how is the ethiopan valued compared to the moroccan opening? the congo? the cape verde?

i ask because i have tried these openings and found none appealing.

I will continue my career as an opening inventor. I am rather sad about the existence of chess computers, because their nonsensical numbers can often deter chess players from playing more exotic and practical openings.

Ah no. 'You are' (or you're) denotes what you are and 'Your' denotes ownership. 'You're' is correct.

As for your career as an opening inventor. Can I respectfully suggest that you invest some of your time in actually researching whether or not your 'inventions' are original.

The line you give is anything but original....

1.e4 e5 2.h3 (Was used by and against Paul Morphy in 1848 & 1857 respectively) Nf6 3.Nc3 Bb4 (Was seen in Narayanan Neelakantan (2230) v Poorna Sharma Mithrakanth (2335) 1992 and in the games of Xavier Delebarre (2264) between 1998 & 2000) 4.a3 Ba5?! 5. Nf3 ( In a IECC game in 1997).

Weak.

black has a development advantage and has reached equality so quickly in the game. 2, h3 just isn't necessary

@ sadkid I noticed you left a note on my home page claiming my comment was unnecessarily rude. 

I honestly though you would see it in the context of your comments being unnecessarily pathetic. And sad. Which is why I said you are truly a sad kid.

I hope putting all this into context makes my comment more palatable.

why not...

White just plays here with black tempo up.

We get a Ruy Lopez where h3 can be a useful move.

For example, Giri played several times the 4 knights with h3 with good results :

If it is so weak, how can such a player like Kramnik be outplayed like this?

I was referring to the first one so I was correct.

Thank you! At last, someone who does not judge a move by the way it looks.
