If some of you guys have questions on stuff, don't be afraid to ask! I'm tracking the comments so I will reply! I may not be a master yet but I have sufficient knowledge of this opening.
cxd5 isn't very interesting, after Qxd5 Nc3 followed by the standard English development (g3, Bg2, etc.), and white is better. Black doesn't have anything. You might be able to transpose to the Catalan though. Those lines are really theoretical though.
Prestigous! You haven't posted a cxd5 game yet!
My favorite opening! can lead to the queen's gambit after 1.c4 d5 2.d4
I know, i'm figuring it out. Thanks though!
You'll get used to it the more you see it and try and read it.
Is chess notation difficult or what? I find it hard to follow.
Best I could do from the top of my head in 5 to 10 minutes. Enjoy! Finding some online databases with these lines would help you a lot if you are looking to play this. There are wayyyyyy more lines though. I didn't cover c4 c5. And there is way more in c4 e5. Not to mention c4 Nf6 and all the other responses.
Much appreciated, PE :)
Fine, when I have time I can show a main line.
cxd5 with an easy game.
Why is that, Ack? What do you do when the opponent plays 1...d5?
this is one of my favorite openings...especially when black replies d5 :)
yes cause i want some good discussion on this opening.
Do you have to see every comment ?
