   Mar-22-14 French, Tarrasch (C03) (replies)
 
FiveofSwords: @danielbryant if anything can catch you offguard then you shouldnt play Be7. Thats a do nothing move. Its fine to play do nothing moves...but you need to have the level of understanding in a position where literally nothing will throw you off your game. There are other moves ...
 
   Mar-22-14 Scotch Game (C45) (replies)
 
FiveofSwords: @e4 resigns...yes it is a 'respectable' move and refuting it isnt technically easy...however rookfile is also technically correct....at computer level play black does get a miserable game if white gambits the pawn and at computer level play black is very likely to lose.

FiveofSwords: the scandinavian is fine...but i dont know why white players always decide to block their c spawn with 3. Nc3. No reason to. I just play 3. d4. Black will have to move the queen again eventually...i may play c4 or nc3 later. and there is no way he can take advantage of having ...
 
   Dec-24-13 Two Knights Defense (C55) (replies)
 
FiveofSwords: amarande, 4...d4 is not a natural move. Black might be okay with playing that move soon, but at least he would want to 0-0 first.
 
   Dec-24-13 Bishop's Opening (C23)
 
FiveofSwords: you dont simply play the bishops opening because you want a random different move on 2. There is a point to developing the bishop instead of, say, 2. Nf3. They are a different approach. 2.nf3 is logical because it developes a piece with a threat. But experience and analysis has

FiveofSwords: @maxxlange if you are going to play 4. cxd4 you really ought to continue with 5...e5. Trying anything else is very dangerous and could likely give white an extra tempo in a position he already understands. 5...e5 is perfectly playable.
 
   Feb-18-13 Anand vs Kramnik, 2005 (replies)
 
FiveofSwords: black loses to tactics in the petroff very often...its very tactical and white has the time advantage. The most embarrasing thing is how simple they often look after they happen...but otb its not so simple to find them because theres so many other options you are also ...
 
   Feb-18-13 Petrov Defense (C42) (replies)
 
FiveofSwords: about this cochrane knight loss stuff...its actually a knight for two pawns...so in term of material you are only one pawn behind. It is not so extreme as you say. I dont recommend playing it if you are trying to 'refute' the petroff. Its not a refutation. But if you jsut want ...
 
   Feb-18-13 Grunfeld, Russian Variation (D81)
 
FiveofSwords: @mindset this line is certainly fine for white...but if you already have been studying the exchange variation...well thats better imho...in fact its why i stopped playing the grunfeld

FiveofSwords: well I think chess is all about making the other guy make a mistake. If there are no mistakes its just a draw. You cannot have an advantage in any position if you preculde the possibility of mistakes.
