  refutor: why is cxb5 not as good in the blumenfeld gambit (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 c5 4.d5 b5) as opposed to the benko gambit (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 c5 3.d5 b5) Opening Explorer
Jan-22-04  Benjamin Lau: I think that's because black has already played ...e6 attacking the head of the pawn chain so the last thing you want to do is to give up the base, that just makes black's job easier. Bg5 is more common probably because it lets white influence d5 which is where black is attacking white. I don't know for sure of course, I play 4. Nc3. No boring white QID for me. :)
Mar-25-04  ruylopez900: From this point here, would people rather play 3...d5 for a QGD setup, 3...Bb4+ for the Bogo-Indian or 3...b6 for a QID?? I would head for the QID, though you never know.
Mar-25-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: I'd play 3...b5 here but I never play ...Nf6, ...e6 anyway so !
Mar-25-04  BiLL RobeRTiE: I meant 3...c5 4. d5 b5
Apr-20-04  PaulKeres: I like 3...c5 as well

  AgentRgent: From this position, I'd play 3...Bb4+. I like the QID also, but I've found white more likely to overextend in the Bogo.
Apr-21-04  PaulKeres: <AgentRgent>, interesting, may be I should try 3...Nb4+ a few times instead of 3...c5. lol, I've just kibitz to you on another page saying I'll stick to 3...c5. Indecision is one of my downfalls! :)
Sep-21-04  Helloween: A recent game of mine as Black in the Blumenfeld CG went:

1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 e6 3. c4 c5 4. d5 b5 5. Bg5 Qa5+ 6. Nc3 Ne4 7. Bd2 Nxd2 8. Nxd2 b4 9. Nce4 Be7 10. Ng3 d6 11. e4 Nd7 12. Qg4 Nf6 13. Qxg7 Rg8 14. Nb3 Qb6 15. Qh6 a5 16. Qc1 h5 17. f3 h4 18. Ne2 e5 19. Qh6 Ba6 20. Nd2 a4 21. b3 Qa5 22. Nc1 axb3 23. Ndxb3 Qa3 24. Qd2 Rg6 25. Bd3 Nh5 26. Rg1 Bg5 27. Qc2 Be3 28. Rh1 O-O-O 29. Bf1 Rdg8 30. Qe2 Bxc1 31. Rxc1 Nf4 32. Qc2 Nxg2+ 33. Bxg2 Rxg2
0-1

Sep-26-04  ayayay: <Helloween> Interesting game there. Was it blitz or classical time control? I guess White could have played on for few moves but it's pretty much hopeless. What do you think where did he went wrong? I guess 27. Qe2 preventing Bishop infiltration was better. 5. Bg5 is usual, but I would have played 5. dxe6. It seems Black gets initative with Qa5 check. Blumenfeld is over all underrated, imo.
Sep-26-04  Lawrence: <ayayay>, welcome to this amazing chess site from all of us.

  Eric Schiller: This ECO code includes a variety of openings, including the Djin (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e6 2.Nf3 a6!?). An updated version of my book on that opening was just published by Hardinge-Simpole. The idea is to play Blumenfeld and Benoni plans with an early ...c5, with ...b5 already enabled. Roman Dzindzichashvili was one of the leading exponents of it. Worth a look if you want something more interesting than the Queen's Indian.
