I doubt he could popularize the Moscow (3.Bb5+ whatever people call it these days) with results like that lol
From the games you show, out of 6 whites he won once, and it was against a player rated 300 below him.
I guess you're his fan and think very highly of him?
I guess you are intentionally missing the point to excuse your operation creating this thread. If this is about after all...i have nothing more to add.
Your Honor? may the Jury be instructed to disregard my observation-interfere?
Honestly I have trouble understanding each of your posts, I think there is some language barrier between us. I'm not doing it intentionally.
Similarly I think you've misunderstood my first post in this thread.
I guess you're saying Svilder was able to prepare because Hammer is well known to choose this line. Maybe you're also suggesting that Hammer plays this line often, so it must mean that he doesn't only play it for a draw.
Still, I see it as an unambitious try, and his results (and frankly the reputation of the line itself) seem to bear that out.
No, its a willing to understand barrier.
When you created this thread, you didn't know Hammers familiarity with this line and when i said to you, go and check his games...you preferred to criticise. Now you know...still behaving like ...ok nothing important....just one another Patzer GM who experiments with his nonsense.
I gave you five games to see when he started to play this line and also to see that in Oktober 2017 he gave two games with the certain line. I told you that in modern GM competition is unlikely for someone with narrow repertoire to repeat the same lines in depth for obvious reasons when modern preparation involves GM's have access to the playable experience of their opponents.
It doesn't matter what and if Svidler was prepared to do so...Hammer had to deviate from usual game plans for the reasons i mentioned. It was an attempt to play something different he didn't before in the near past and that has nothing to do with his expectations on results.
For him, the most important was to deviate...like it or not!!
Should i translate it into Super IM Pfren's language?
Not much to discuss, 3. Bb5 is simply bad.
