|Jul-03-05|| ||dbquintillion: can anyone explain to me why black plays 22. ...Bh5 and 23. ...Bxe2?|
Seems like a lot of wasted tempi to exchange bishops when the black bishop looks better than the white one, in my view.
The text eventually leads to the black knight gaining the e4 post, but that seems very temporary, as evidenced by the way the game played out.
I'm sure these were all good, sound moves, but my limited chess intellect struggles to see why.
|Jul-03-05|| ||ConspTheory06: Doesnt this opening fall under the Orangitan?(I know my spelling is wrong)|
|Jul-03-05|| ||martinshortsays: I've always known 1.b4 as the Polish or Sokolsky opening.|
|Jul-03-05|| ||WannaBe: <martinshortsays> yes, that is correct. (oh boy, I am so druuuuunk. it took me 5 min and 10 backspaces to type this....) Anyone want to ploy a gaem of chwss/.>.,..,.? LOL|
|Jul-03-05|| ||jahhaj: <dbquintillion> I expect Black had in mind removing a defender from c4 and also possible light square weaknesses around White's king. It doesn't work out terribly well and simply doubling the rooks on the e file looks better but Black has a lousy position anyway.|
|Jul-03-05|| ||farrooj: Amazing pun!!
On the last move black must have thought <oops...>
this is the only game I saw till now with the ourangoutan opening.. Isn't it refuted?
|Jul-03-05|| ||Bobsterman3000: ugly opening.|
|Jul-03-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: Sokolsky is all mad at 1.b4 opening ... as here for example: Sokolsky vs Krupski, 1960|
|Jul-03-05|| ||Chess Addict: Then, White is up a Knight and a Bishop.|
|Jul-03-05|| ||kevin86: Could we call the opening,the Polish Wing Gambit? Flohr is walked all over here! (sorry).|
|Jul-03-05|| ||Autoreparaturwerkbau: <kevin86> Why gambit. I don't see any "offering a minor piece, usually a pawn, for a favorable position" (definition of gambit) in an opening. Or did you say it cos it just sounds good? :)|
|Jul-03-05|| ||farrooj: It is called the polish game i think no?|
|Jul-03-05|| ||aw1988: The Sokolsky, Polish, Orangutan, or as I like to call it, the Superior Grob.|
|Jul-03-05|| ||halcyonteam: Sweep the floor!!|
|Dec-24-08|| ||WhiteRook48: what a pun... weird opening by both players anyway|
|Feb-01-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 1...a5 looks weird|
|Aug-07-09|| ||WhiteRook48: 1 b4?!?!|
