  refutor: any opinions on the "english defense" as played here with ...f5? good? garbage? playable? i was thinking about playing 1. ...b6 in response to the english, and playing it like a QID but then i saw a couple games where black plays ...f5 before ...Nf6 and thought it was an interesting idea...any opinions?
Aug-08-04  gmann: <refutor> GM Daniel King's opinion about the early ...f5 in the Eng. def. is that "while it is great fun, it has been shown to be risky". He deals with this variation in chapter 2 of his book simply called "English Defense" (Everyman Chess). If you're interested in the book, it's current and, in my opinion, thorough and very accessible. Regarding the line, my (very) brief experience using ...f5 early in internet matches tells me that you have to play pretty aggressively to keep White from tearing your Kingside wide-open; which can be half the fun.
Aug-08-04  gmann: <refutor> A nice example is Donner - Miles 1978.
