|Apr-23-02|| ||Sneaky: visit http://www.instantchess.com/
there are lots of beginners there |
|Mar-24-04|| ||ruylopez900: Do any white players take ep here? I wouldn't know since I've never played this but I'm just wondering. |
|Mar-24-04|| ||Kenkaku: 3. dxe6 always bothered me in this line, as I don't like playing moves such as fxe6. |
|Mar-24-04|| ||ruylopez900: <Kenkaku>, correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think 3.fxe6 is an available option. |
|Mar-24-04|| ||Kenkaku: <ruylopez900> I meant when I was playing the black side of this opening. 3. dxe6 fxe6 |
|Mar-24-04|| ||ruylopez900: Ahh, gotcha! =D |
|Apr-16-04|| ||Dillinger: i think taking ep is mainline czech, where black gets an extra central pawn in exchange for a slightly exposed king. if retake with d pawn black loses castling rights so f pawn is probably better - i dont know the theory too well. |
|May-02-04|| ||Reti Incarnate: This would have to be one of my favourite openings! Black, despite the statistics above, can score quite well if you play ambitiously (check out the game by Alekhine).
The move 3. dxe6 e.p. has always bothered me too, but you'll find that playing simply 3. fxe6 gives Black a central majority and White has little chance of obtaining any advantage. Follow up with ...d5 at some stage, and you'll control the entire centre! Moo ha ha ha ha ha ha! |
P.S. does anyone know how i can get a 'signature' for my comments? like, so that i can put 'good day' at the bottom of my comments automatically? thxs
|May-02-04|| ||BiLL RobeRTiE: Fortunately, you can't put a signature at the bottom of your comments. ;) |
|Dec-11-04|| ||tacticsjokerxxx: it's not only about the central pawns, fxe6 gains an open rook file on F after castling, which is why dxe6 e.p. is considered theoretically wrong. |
|Jun-19-05|| ||crumpy: when I play d4 on chessmaster on my gba, the reply is always c5 but now since i have seen this opening, I can use this to my advantage.|
