    You are impatient.  I never question my sanity after the first drink.  Even after the second drink I still firmly believe I am the sanest old fart around.  My sanity-doubts never kick in before the fourth drink, and I do not count the beer.

    I came up with a great opening I called it The Double Scotch Opening.  Sorry I have ben trying to remember it since the next morning after discovering it.

    I would like to see f5 though it is not exactly how you say it Sound

    either that or, Nc6 is almost forced

  • #23

    I have played it, along with the siesta variation, and honestly I prefer the look of the other player after 2. ... f5 because they look at me like I am a mad man.Tongue out

    Nc6 isnt forced just best  also, jet have you heard of 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 f5!? seems right up your ally

    What have you against 2...Nf6?

  • #25

    I probably shouldn't play the Petrov. The overwhelming majority wants to play 2...Nc6, and so do I, so I won't wait to play this move.


  • #26

    Bc4 here, aim that holyman at f7 and get some tactics flowing, the Ruy is just to theoretical, Evan's Gambit this thing. lol

  • #27


    Is that like the Scotch Game and Soda?

  • #28

    Bb5,Bc4,d4 are my candidates.


  • #29


    The PONZ!


  • #30

    3.Bb5 Ruy Lopez is too theoretical as jetfighter13 said and I don't want to stay in the book for 20 more moves.

    3.d4 Scotch Gambit is interesting but instead I want to play

    I really don't like it after 3...d5

    I do like the Scotch Gambit as it can catch out the unwary opponent. Learning the white side of it has helped me become familiar with the transposing lines into Giuoco Piano and Two Knight's Defense. Lots of fun! Laughing


    And you're quite right - the Ponziani is pretty useless if your opponent is prepared or has access to an opening database. It is a useful surprise weapon in blitz chess against the unwary opponent!

    I prefer the Two Knights defense, but the Pianissimo crap makes me want to barf, and as far as I know it's basically unavoidable if the opponent wants to play it.

  • #35

    For some reason, now that I've gone back to 1.e4 e5 (Kaufman repertoire) I am getting a lot of Evan's Gambit. Doesn't worry me as much as it used to. I was expecting a lot more Lev Alburt / Roman Dzindzi Giuoco Piano lines

  • #36

    I play 3...Nf6

    sorry Ng5 d5 exd5 b5

    Interesting but isn't Na5 simpler and stronger?

    depends on your opponent. If he is prepared, then yes. If he isn't, then no

    I think my opponent is prepared with databases and an army of forumers at is side Tongue out

    Without glancing at a database it looks completely unsound. It might be okay for a blitz game, but I wouldn't even try it in a long game or correspondence game.
