Sokolsky Opening. Has anyone had success persisting with the lines


I do like the idea of placing the White light squared bishop on the h1-a8 diagonal! Perhaps better sometimes tahn the b1-h7 diagonal. Which would hamper the development of both White's knigts to d2 and e2. I must remember this for my own future games.


Out of 14 correspondence ICCF games I played so far, since I started playing again since September last year my record is as follows for the Sokolsky:

3 games won

5 games draw

6 games lost

So plenty to improve for in 2023! And beyond. And learn not to reply to an opponents move too quickly, but look ahead much further. One thing is for sure, I am not an OTB player ;-)
