We are a study group. Our primary activity is Vote Chess where we play and discuss the variations of this opening.
The theory is better to learn. I usually do 3. Bg2 4. O-O 5. D3 6. C4. Play from there. Develops everything and gives powerful centre grab
very passive opening
Nice.But d5 is a problem
Playin' d white, is the next move going to be B-f2 ??!
Then white castles to g1........!! Is that going to be a good defense, I doubt about it !!
It's my favourite opening!!!
I love this opening!!!!!!!!!!! This opening helps me to win so many matches!!! The King's Indian Defence is another opening I recommend!!!!
I like the knight move, but not the pawn.
Moving the knight first gives you a chance to see what your opponent will do, before committing your pawns.
I have been using this a lot lately.
p.s. I tried to run the spell check and it didn't work.
I personally like KIA, it protects the White's king pretty good, never make the move e4 if it will be fixed in that position, the light square bishop will be a bad piece. In the position after White castled, I prefer that you immediately fight in the center. In any case, the king is well protected, however, if your opponent starts a kingside attack, secure your position ASAP.
I am a bit new to this opening, but I understand the bottom strategy.Against Computer [Hard (~1600)] (Fast play):
I hate to use this opening...I did'nt know how to use it...
HaveAnotherGame, I play against Shredder and it uses this d5 move a lot.
It's the Scandinavian Defense. Just put "chess e4 d5 Wiki" and you'll see.
I do 2. e4xd5 and then comes the black Queen on her own. She can create a lot of problems, but not with d5. If she moves too much, she looses time. Then comes a bishop and it may sacrifice to open my defense, etc.
It is a good move if preparing to castle
I get it. All 4 bishops are on the same colors.
