royalbishop, I don't need to learn to use the quote button lol. It would just be a wall of text and that is why I didn't use it. You give a quote, but you don't say where it is from, lol.
Your rambling post has multiple spelling errors so frankly it is hard to understand. There are not any traps in my future with the Alekhine, I have played it hundreds of times on this site without much problems. You look at an opening you have no experience with one time, look at some book, and somehow this makes you an expert and you are trying to lecture me about the opening lol. I offered to play you so you could show me how you would counter the Alekhine's Defence, but you haven't responded to this. I can only assume you know I would whoop you.
It is easy to look at a book, and talk like you are the man lol, but I have had actual experience with the opening. You didn't write the book on the Alekhine. You are so ridiculous lol. If you don't want to play it, just say it doesn't appeal to you; don't lecture me about the opening you are unfamiliar with and act like you are the man.
The funny part is you are not even the person that started this thread. You just want to hijack this thread for whatever reason and be argumentative lol
I have played it hundreds of times on this site without much problems.
This statement is not true as you have only played it 69 times on this site.
You are both assholes ! You should make this a private discussion instead of abusing this open thread.
royalbishop, did you look up how many times i played it? i don't know how to do that. I have been premoving ...Nf6 for quite a while, so it feels like I have played it more. Why don't you want to challenge me? I will play whatever time control you want. It will be a good learning experience for us
Btw pelly, I don't know why you feel the need to butt in, but I have not been an asshole in this thread. I posted to help out the OP but it got sidetracked with royalbishop and I let him know what I thought. I don't really do 'private discussions,' I just call things as I see them. Don't be so dramatic
Chesshole : you can find out the frequency of play by moving your mouse on the players name : this will open a popup menu. The last items in this menu will lead you to the players opening-repertoire
As white I play the english (1. c4) and am very sucsesfull with it, (I love it!) so I guess it is kinda odd that I don't like the Sicilian... But I will give it a try, possibly the Dragon.. And I liked the idea of the Nimzowitch.
I think I will try out the Pirc... That looks like something I could be decent with
I am learning the Pirc and I like it. Nice vs e4
Latvian Gambit is pretty agressive. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5. Not fully sound though, but at your rating level that shouldn't be a problem, it might even be an advantage.
