    Gentlemen, if you do insist feeding the troll, please don't feed it with the shovel.

    The OP has started 10 threads in 10 days.

    This thread is 6 months old, and keeps digging the same row, over and over again.

    Any reasonable opening book on double e-pawn openings should give the OP the answers he seeks.

    This has not happened in several months, which is why I forgot.

    I also suffered a severe head wound 3 years ago, and my memory is blank.

    I had no idea I explored this opening prior.

    That is why I append to this thread, so I can review.

    This time, I think I will remember how to counter.

    As black play h6 after Bc4, as white just castle.

    OK, @Jack-OH.  I corrected the post above.

    Any decent repetorie book covering double e-pawn openings should solve all your problems.

    If memory is an issue for you, try playing a "fixed formation" from the white side.  For example, pawns on d4 and c3, with a king-side fianchetto.  That will keep your openings simple, and not so tactical.

    Sorry about your wound Jack, you are pretty incredible to survive a gun to the head. Goodluck with the chess and stay strong.

    BOOOOOYA !!!    Look who learned a thing from this thread.   

    This time, I am WHITE.   LOL!!

    Kick ass.  Then take names.  Laughing

    Try a different opening?  Look up queen's pawn game for white, and the french defense for black perhaps?  If a guy is beating you with one trick, then remove the trick from his arsenal!

    Haha this is the right way to learn openings. if you get crushed by something start using it yourself. Until someone shows you how to beat it anyways..

    I recommend the Traxler counter attack for you whenever you see 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 since considering your rating people would oftentimes not go for Fried Liver Attack but instead do 4. ...Bc5 5. Nxf7 forking the Queen and Rook but you don't have to worry about that with Traxler counter attack.

    For me, you learn about tactics by learning openings.

    Only if you learn the "whys" of openings, though, not just the memorized lines.

    That would be surprising but it appears that the ratings are for two different formats to play chess here.

    Standard versus blitz rating. They are separate listings.

    Any general principles I need to be aware of to prevent this crap?  THREE IN A ROW...  UGH.


    Generally, study tactics and learn to see hanging piece while avoiding leaving yours hanging or en pris. 

    Often Queens out in the opening deserve to be attacked. 

    Don't "just accept" exchanges.
