Also, I am on a smartphone and can't see the whole board pin-posted at the top... Is there a way I can see the moves leading to the pin-posted position?
Hi 🙋 folx. Ol head chess playa here trying to improve. That said, could someone please explai things here. Or tell me where to go (no, not there!), to find out?
There are moves posted that auto play... How are we supposed to use these and what for?
I'd like to practice openings and learn good moves for variations I am most likely to run into.
I also don't understand many notations under game analyses?
Wher, what, how?
Great anti-sicilian weapon. It is not unsound at all, and leads to more positional, subtle positions. Great recommendation to use as a surprise weapon and take those Sicilian-fans out of their theory
i prefer playing c3 here to go into the smith morra gambit.
No es una apertura broma, el gran maestro hungaro savon la utilizo en los años 70 con muy buenos resultados, ademas es un arma muy eficaz contra los que no estan familiarizados con esta captura del peón d4 con la dama, puede ayudar a ganar minutos preciosos, ademas de que suele producir juegos muy agudos, llenos de muchas sutilezas. Como arma sorpresa es muy efectiva, yo la he jugado en alrededor de una docenas de partidas, y si he perdido 3 juegos es mucho.
OpeningGambit - apparently Svidler, J Polgar, Grischuk and Michael Adams disagree!
Good opening against Sicilian.
If he can pin down the knight, who noy just play e5?
White's queen can stay there for a while.
the queen has been exposed to the center
once i played this opening ended with 9 move checkmate for white
after checkhover, 4...Nc6 5.Bb5! Bd7 6.Qa5 a6! 7.Bc4 Ne5?!(the best move was b5 forking bishop and queen) 8.Nxe5 Bxa5?? 9.Bxf7#
ever thought about that? twice it happened in my games, Ne5 was trying to fork my knight and my queen to make forced move Qb3 and black play e6, there is almost no development for black, and very dangerous doubled e file pawns, if you like this opening, then you are my friend, gg.
I have found that this is the best opening to use against players unfamiliar with the Sicilian. After a few moves White can begin an unmerciful attack on Black's queenside.
Joke? I'm playing a game with it now and it seems to play ok, most people push Nc6 reflexively and then Bb5 pins it. The only decent white response from there is Bd7 to break the pin, and letting white swap his light squared bishop for the knight, and leaving the queen quite safe in the centre for a while (long enough to finish development).
If black pushes Bd7 first, then there is a few safe retreat squares for the queen where she won't cramp whites development. And it's good for taking people out of their comfort zones early.
i also think its null, against the principle of not taking the queen out in the opemimg stages of the game
think i will try this opening
didnt like it
also, it's black to move.
My man Panzar will pwn you with this opening.
What a joke opening!
Play that for a laugh!
