underrated/underused openings

Nausea-Sartre

The old benoni is great for blitz. An immediate c5 after d4. Gets lazy London players to actually think about the first few moves.

Mark's Opening:

It's at least as good as the Veresov Attack.

Isn't this more commonly called the Jobava London System?

https://www.gingergm.com/shop/jobava-london-system

But since your blog is from 2008 - maybe "Mark's Opening" is the correct name!

I've heard a few incorrect names for it, usually including the name Jobava. Baduur Jobava plays the opening, but the correct name is Mark's Opening.

Then why Mark's Opening and not the Colovic Opening or Colovic Attack? FM Dusan Colovic seems to play it regularly and has games on record predating this blog.

Maybe Dusan Colovic just never published any analysis of it?

U think this opening has to be named as your own line but...

- your analysis are irrelevant, giving wrong moves and assertions for both sides.

- nobody plays it (except some having no clue what they are doing in openings). Jobava and other don't play it, their move order and the moves they play are different (and somewhat better) than yours.

I dont know why patzers always want to reinvent the wheel or think they are the first one thinking like them, just ridiculous.

This is how Jobava plays it. After Bf5, Nf3 is not a good move. After pretty much any other move, white sets up with Nf3, e3, Bd3 and plays for the e5 square.

 What wrong moves or assertions?

Grandmasters play it. Antoaneta Stefanova plays it; Baduur Jobava plays it; and before it even was an opening, Alexander Alekhine played it.

This discussion will never die, you've been at it for several months now...

Tradition has it that the long ending to Mark's Gospel would have been even longer had God not told him to leave out the opening analysis

I don't think that is a requirement. For example, to my knowledge Alekhine never published any analysis of his namesake opening. Besides, 300 words does not an opening analysis make.

I tend to prefer birds when they are closed

I’ve really perfected a variant of the birds that I have been using for a couple of years now that I find very successful.

For the umpteenth time, none of these players play like u...

Some gave above variations they play, which are quite different (and a bit stronger...) than yours.

U just created (or renamed because u didnt reinvent the wheel) an opening no good player play because it is not good.
