I just used game explorer to check out 1. d4 d5 2. c4 e6 3. c5. It's a very bad idea, from what I saw, which is why, I suspect, there were no games involving this line in the data base.
Thank you ongoingprocess for your comment. It really added some value to this tutorial.
On Saturday July 11, 2015 I played through the first 4 moves of this opening.
2. c6 would be better.
cll3:- 4. e4 is a big mistake. No compensation.
This is what I usually do when it isn't accepted.
there is a nice pos. for the greek gift from here
It's too dangerous
Almost half of games like this come out in a draw? Am I reading the Result graph wrong?
all I can say about Queens Gambit is: never accept - I've almost never seen a Queens gambit accepted where black has come out on top (or even scraped by with a draw)
I've played this variation as Black, although I wasn't quite sure as to why the third knight is pulled out, why is that exactly? It doesn't really protect any current threats, and I think the Knight could probably be pulled later as a defensive manouver. What are it's offensive prevelances? (If any)
[I get ripped by knights in my games, I can't see their offensive abilities well enough, that's the one thing I need to learn better]
I play the Queen's Gambit as both white and black. It's loads of fun!
i like queen openings but i don't like queen's gambit unless i play as white.. i don't think it's effective for black..
yes i like it also!!!!
