Mokele Mbembe: Black Knight's Safari

Yigor

I often play Mokele Mbembe as black, just for fun. There is one funny natural variation, a long hunting on the black knight grin.png

 

 

It seems terrible for black but, actually, it's easy to equalize in few moves if white doesn't have a precise and aggressive plan. peshka.png

Play the Berlin! also easy equality, but you dont have to weaken your muscles by moving the knight 1km

The Berlin defense is for rigorous Germans. Russians like long Cossack cavalry raids. blitz.pngbn.png--->bn.pngblitz.pngwink.png

It's got nothing to do with your Vorsprung durch Technik, you know.

Even the inventor of this line, the German FM Stefan Buecker, has dismissed it as totally unsound.

Right, impossible to contest your wise opinion in this case. Unsound but funny and perfectly playable up to ELO 2000. tongue.png
