|Feb-14-04|| ||marcus13: Yes, but if white only advance resonbely is pawn there should be no danger to lose. |
|Feb-14-04|| ||Catfriend: It's quite difficult to know what exactly is reasonably... And if you move slowly there isn't any chase you promised:)|
|Feb-14-04|| ||marcus13: Read My System by Nimzo and u wiil convice your self taht a big pawn center is good. |
|Feb-15-04|| ||Catfriend: Read My system by Nimzo and you"ll convince yourself that F.E. 1.e5 c5 2.♘f3 ♘f6!? is good!|
|Feb-17-04|| ||PaulKeres: I'm entering into a correspondance game, with the following moves so far:
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 Nc6 3. Nc3 e5 4. d5
Any ideas, I'm thinking of 4...Ne7 / Nb8 / Nd4. <Catfriend and shr0pshire > what would you do? I don't think there are any other choices, are there?
|Feb-17-04|| ||PaulKeres: I think 4...Nb8 is best. Nd4 seems to reckless, where as Ne7 blocks the King's bishop, and there may not be time to either move the knight again or fianchetto, before the Bishop can move (allowing 0-0).
<Catfriend>, you are right, it is similar to Alekhine in some respects. Any Alekhine players out there? (In fact this seems even more risky than the Alekhine!!)|
|Feb-17-04|| ||Phoenix: Actually, I've seen 4...Ne7 played before. The idea is to reroute the N to g6 and then move the Bishop (usually to c5 or something). |
|Feb-17-04|| ||drukenknight: how can you play corr. and solicit advice on your game? |
|Feb-17-04|| ||Phoenix: Hey...actually that is a good question drukenknight. |
|Feb-18-04|| ||Benzol: <dk> That's a very good point.
<PaulKeres> As far as I know you're allowed to consult books (but don't quote me on that one) and I guess that means you could use the 'Opening Explorer' but you're not allowed to consult other players in correspondence games. It's your game and it's you who must play it. |
|Feb-18-04|| ||Bears092: I always thought that you could use anything except another human and an analysis engine. |
|Feb-18-04|| ||drukenknight: even more difficult and arcane to understand are the rules concerning GM annotations:|
1. Annotations must long and annoyingly complex. Multiple possible lines should always be shown in order to further confuse.
2. No annotations must ever say "I got lucky cause the guy just missed that the B was en prise" or similar such admissions. Annotations must prove that the player actually won the game w/ his own "!" moves and not because of "?" moves.
3. POssible alternative lines that might have saved the game should not be mentioned unless too early in the game to be of any use to the reader.
|Feb-18-04|| ||PaulKeres: Sorry guys, I didn't realise you weren't allow to consult. I've never played correspondance before. Anyway I've decided to play 4...Ng8, so I'm not following any advice anyway. I won't ask again, I'm not a cheat. |
|Feb-20-04|| ||Benzol: <PaulKeres> Good on ya mate ! |
|Feb-20-04|| ||PaulKeres: Thanks Benzol |
|Mar-15-04|| ||morphyvsfischer: Against the Mexican defense (the two knights tango) play 3 Nf3 followed by Nc3, e4, Be2 and 0-0 and White has the better game. Avoid pushing d5 until you've developed and have prepared for the queenside attack so typical for white in d4 openings. |
|Apr-22-05|| ||Backward Development: I have to face the Mexican defense on many occasions and have had a bit of trouble with it. I typically employ the 3.Nf3 e6 4.a3 lines and the game usually continues turns into a kind of king's indian defense after 4...Be7 5.Nc3 0-0 6.e4 d6 7.Be2 e5 etc. White has to be careful playing by rote<Be3, f3, and Bf2 after f4> because Black can play Bh4! after which he has excellent play. It may seem as though black will be playing a KID a tempo or two down, but he saves a tempo on the KS pawn storm with g7-g5 and two tempi on an exchanging maneuver Be7-g5(or h4). All in all, the line is sound and I have yet to find an original idea against it that guarantees an advantage. |
|Jul-04-05|| ||aw1988: I've always knows Nc6 as the Kevitz-Trajkovich.|
|Jul-04-05|| ||Mislav: Hikaru Nakamura has been playing 2 knights tango recently. I think this opening is very much under rated for no good reason. I am considering to learn it cause there aren't too many lines and white will probably be confused already after move 2.|
|Jan-31-08|| ||Open Defence: Another interesting alternative is 1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nc6 now 4.Nc3 allows 4...Bb4 which is the NID Zurich Line I believe.. which seems quite playable (those with more experience in that line please share your views) but an anti Nimzo line like 4.g3 (since 3.Nf3 was probably played to avoid the Nimzo anyway) 4...Bb4+ is interesting for example 5.Bd2 a5?! 6.Bg2 d6 7.0-0 and we have a fairly playable position for Black|
|Jan-31-08|| ||MaxxLange: <drukennight> you forgot the most important rule. Whichever Rook was moved, it was the "wrong Rook".|
|Feb-06-08|| ||Alphastar: <Open Defence: but an anti Nimzo line like 4.g3>
You can consider replying 4. ..d5, entering a catalan with Nc6, which leads to pretty sharp play.|
|May-19-08|| ||Alphastar: By the way, I play this as my main defence to 1. d4 and I have a huge plus score with it. An opening trap I've been able to employ about 10 times so far is:|
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 Nc6 3. Nc3 e5 4. d5 Ne7 5. e4 Ng6 6. Bd3 Bc5 7. Nge2??? (7. h3 or 7. Nf3) Ng4 and black wins
|Jan-29-13|| ||Archswindler: I thought I'd looked at pretty much every defence against 1. d4 (and not been happy with any of them), until the other day I discovered the Tango. Where have you been all my life!?|
|Apr-03-13|| ||perfidious: <Archswindler>: Until one fine Monday morning in Philadelphia, never faced the Tango (or had even heard of it!), but was introduced to it thus:|
