To fiachonti...or not to fiachonti?

also,  it took two tempi to develop the bishops,  one to play b3 and g3 respectively, and another to actually put the bishops on b2 and g2.  that gives me time to try to open up the position and use a numbers advantage.

I don't understand your explanation. When you play e3 - Bd3 you played two move to developpe your piece as g3 - Bg2. Where is the loss of tempi ? And you are not forced to fianchetto both bishop. One is okay also.

1- I apologise if you are disturbed by the misspelling, although I don't find it that important......

2-as for btickler.....what do you mean??

Lets all start fianchonti-ing our bishops.

Not funny...really...we being serious here...

I believe it comes down to personal preference. I don't think there is anything terrible or great about it. I love doing so based on the writings of GM Yasser Seirawan (although he has since said he doesn't do so as often now).

I spell the word properly, fianchetto; however, I mispronounce it as I learned the pronunciation incorrectly. Apparently, it is fee uhn KET oh, not fee uhn chet toe (the way I still say it). GM Yasser Seirawan mispronounces both fianchetto and Pirc (pronounced PERK, not Pirk). I don't think anyone holds this against him.

GM Yasser Seirawan on the Pirc defence and financhettoing a Bishop (in particular 3:55 to 5:00) . . .

Yasser is a great explainer of ideas/strategies. He takes something complicated and makes it easy to understand. He's definitely worth listening to about the fianchonti.

I use to pronounce pirc like it looks but I've heard or read it's pronounced peertz. Same with the old fianchetto vs fianketto debate. I always, along with many respected GMs, always pronounced it with ch but a master friend told me it's with a k sound. Its an Italian word apparently, so the ch is with a k sound.

The bunny does fettucine sometimes, but being mostly agnostic about a lot of openings, he actually prefers agnolotti.  Never fiachonti.

Fianchonti is a type of Italian pasta.

The word you are looking for is fianchetto.

Alright...I get it....fiachonti is dangerous in face of players who know how to use it....

 

 I think "tricky" is a better description.

Welp, to fianchonti or not depends on the position. Fianchonti-ing (that's hard to say, I tried it) is only weakening IF ur opponent can make use of the "weak" squares. But u dont have to fianchonti. As with most things, the fianchonti has good & bad points depending on so many variables.

 

Every single word in both the sentences you wrote is wrong.
