Nice explanation. Helpful for anyone under 1300.
Did you make these up yourself?
Because I found a website called http://www.chesscentral.com/Chess_Strategy_a/201.htm
and it has guidlines pretty much identical to yours....
Do you think they copied you, or is it that you got it from them?
there is one move that ends the game in 4 truns. You attack F7.
Yes the scholars mate or four move checkmate, but breaks the rules of dont bring your queen out to early, don't develop the same piece twice, castle early and often, avoid premature attacks, and develop your knights before your bishops. Black can easily stop mate and get much much better development than white by attacking the queen while bringing out a piece, which forces the queen to move than black can bring out a new piece and be much better in development than white. And if white still tries to mate, black can hold it down so that white is only threating check, and if white does that check, white loses a bishop and now black is superior in development. (See in this video how to stop 4 move checkmate -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFQjoWaJtjk) So I recommend to not use that opening and try a different opening. But also don't fall into the trap of studying openings, but not working on actually playing chess, working on your tactics, and working on your strategies. Get down the mechanics of chess first.
You're sore and pathetic loser! First, you almost let the clock run down (5min waiting). You thought I would left, did you? Then, when you saw I'm there, you simply disconnected. Now I know why you disabled comments on your profile!
@teslaweapon - maybe he experienced a power cut or something?
@IMJustice - No, he was on all the time. I haven't seen the red disconnecting text during the game. He just let the clock run down and waited for me to get bored and eventually forfeit the game. That is so low.
i dont play such dirty tricks like you to wait for a opponent to go.
i was there but occupied with other stuff.so lately i remember that i was in the middle of game but when i come back i was almost lost on time so resigned the game.
Yeah, you suddenly got "occupied" in the middle of the game in a lost position. Give me a break. That is so disrespectful towards your opponent. End of story with this for me. You revealed yourself who you are. Reconsider your attitude when losing, be a sport.
