Does moving my rook off the first rank lead to trouble?
don't know whats the position
Soldier, please post a diagram :p
I need a diagram!
Nc3! is my reccomendation
regardless of CS's responce you play Nxd5
Nc3 Rxh2 Nxd5 Rxh3 Nf6+ Kf8 Nxe8 Kxe8 -+
I like that type of Desperado moves Maarten
How is that desperado? :s
continuing to move the rook while the other is going to be exchanged for a knight
How did 4. Nxd4 take you out of book in the Scotch? It's the natural continuation and the only move ever played.
guess he doesn't read up on the scotch. also
Nxd5 is the move to make here
So wouldn't d4 be the move taking him out of book
maybe he knows what it is or is more used to seeing Bc4. I took him out of book on move three in a forum game. (e4 e5 f4 exf4 Bc4
both kinds right....
