Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-11-02  refutor: does any one else think it's time to redo the eco codes? when something like this has it's own code and only 39 games (including duplicates) and the caro-kann advanced with all it's theory only has one code (b12-1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.other) there's other examples too (evans gambit/king's gambit/modern steinitz ruy lopez v. some of the queen's indian/catalan lines). a system for classification that was developed in the mid 1900s likely isn't appropriate today

just my 2 cents ;)

Dec-11-02  THE GENERAL: when did eco start?
Dec-11-02  refutor: i'm gonna assume the 70s because i have an old informant from 1972 and it's split up into 3 sections C,D,E where it's basically split up into C) stuff other than 1.d4, 1.e4 D) 1.d4 and E) 1.e4 with a few exceptions. if they've changed it since then, i'm sure they could change it again
Jun-27-03  Benjamin Lau: Wow this opening is bad.
Jun-27-03  drunknight II: I heartily agree w/ refutor. This ECO code stuff does not make any sense to me. They have what 3 areas? but they put like french defense in the same area as double king pawn openings?

The classic way is still a great way to think about it. Tartakover divided his book into 3 sections. Open games, w/ e4/e5; semi closed which was e4 vs french, sicilian, carokann, alekhines etc; and then closed which was all based on queens gambit and kings indian, benoni, etc.

this makes perfect sense. The old MCO books used to do it this way.

Wasnt ECO started in eastern europe as some sort of system for Gligoric and his friends to sort out openings?

French defense in same section as Dutch or whatever. Ugh
