Madagascan Defense is awesome. Kudos to TC for using something other than the same boring rote openings as 99% of players.

I appreciate his creativity, I hate main lines as well, but I know when an idea is good... or bad.

So you are aware, then, that this is a great idea!

Actually, I know this is a bad idea. You never even TRIED to refute my line on post 117!

The fact is, it refutes itself

b5! is too strong. Strong gambit!

why bf4?! f4 ng6 nf3 gives white a big advantage. must be like 0.8.  without rb8 the line is closer to 0.4 and playable although not a position pleasant for everyone.

this is quite playable although black must play with surprising precision. (usually bc5 bd7 nh6, f6, nf7, e5) as usually played by IM vlasenko and GM stevic.

 

black cannot afford to lose the extra tempo with rb8.

A beautiful game. I am glad at least someone is humble enough to adopt this defense rather than trying to criticize it because it is something they have not considered before.

For white, I recommend my famous ethiopian opening. Here it is, in its full glory: https://www.chess.com/forum/view/chess-openings/ethiopian-opening
