|Dec-20-04|| ||erasmus: there's something wrong with the picture. This will arrive after the player's have followed the main line continuing with 5. d4 exd4 6. cxd4 |
|Feb-28-05|| ||rochade18: it is not really wrong, you will often see that - but if hitting "explore this opening" it will be ok |
|May-31-08|| ||ruelas007: My favourite opening and the least kibitzed?|
|Aug-08-09|| ||SamAtoms1980: Opening of the Day, when I have the white pieces this is often the way I go.|
|Apr-27-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Does anyone here regularly play the Moeller Attack? I thinking about it but I need "master support".|
|Aug-22-10|| ||rapidcitychess: Well with my flashy new membership I looked it up.
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 4. c3 Nf6 5. d4 exd4 6. cxd4 Bb4+ 7. Nc3 Nxe4 8. O-O Bxc3 9. d5 Bf6 10. Re1 Ne7 11. Rxe4 d6 12. Bg5 Bxg5 13. Nxg5 h6 14. Qe2 hxg5 15. Re1 Be6 16. dxe6 f6 That's the popular line, why does it score so low? It seems like a great pawn on e6, his kingside is wrecked, and white has some chances for attack on the king by the h5-e8 line. <Once> again, why does the line score close to 10% for white, 70% for black! Is there a forced win?
|May-20-11|| ||janatoli2: <rapidcitychess> there is no forced win and the line is indeed tricky. After 16.... f6 17. Re3!? (idea Rh3 etc.) black has to find 17. ... c6! (and not d5). Maybe it is more tricky to delay the capture of blacks queens bishop and play 16. Re3 directly.
But you know that black can also play the solid 13. ... 0-0, right? (What would you play in such a case?)|
|Dec-29-14|| ||Sorrowdy: To rapidcitychess: Yes, this line is very bad for white, I think I know all the 7.Nc3 line as nobody on this planet because I analyze it for 30 years already :) The move 14. Qe2 is weak. Much more better is 14.Qa4! There is no attack then but changes are equal. My all analyses are on www.sorrowdy.mysteria.cz and unfortunately it is only in Czech language but there are translator very usefull today and moves are very simple to understand.
