  thegoodanarchist: I don't understand why <ughaibu> is so critical of your posts.

I see many, many chess contributions from you.

More than I contribute about chess!

Sep-01-17  Big Pawn: He hates Cormier because he hates God and Cormier keeps posting Bible verses. Pretty simple actually. Liberal atheists are, above all, angry and hateful.

  cormier: Carlsen vs Bu Xiangzhi, 2017

Sep-10-17 Clement Fraud: BRAVO!! I like the way Bu Xiangzhi plays. White loses out in this opening when he plays d2-d3 so early, as this allows black to equalize with his Bishop placed on e7.

To refute the Hungarian Defense, white needs to keep open the option of playing d2-d4 (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Be7? 4.d4!).

  cormier: The Secrets to Mastering the Chess Opening

2. Morphy vs McConell
3. Shaw vs Zeidler
4. Horn vs Liardet
5. Capablanca vs Scott
6. Levenfish vs Alekhine
7. Spielmann vs Nimzowitsch

in the second example we dive into the game Morphy vs McDonell where white wins thanks to a rapid lead in development. In the third video we see black lose too many tempi with his queen in the early stages of the game, for which he will be punished very dearly! In the fourth video, we study a gambit where black prioritizes his development in place of material game while in chapters 5-6 we examine a few games by the former World Chess Champions Capablanca and Alekhine all the while emphasizing their energetic and attentive styles of play from the very first moves. Lastly, we will analyze a game where white plays very ambitiously in the opening to create powerful long-term outposts to stage a deadly attack!

Sep-12-17  Arconax: <cormier: To refute the Hungarian Defense, white needs to keep open the option of playing d2-d4 (1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Be7? 4.d4!).>

It's true that the aforementioned game transposed from the Bishop's Game into the Hungarian Defense (a defense which is rarely seen but interesting, I think). The position that arose was in fact a form of an hybrid between the Hungarian and an offbeat line of the Prussian (Two Knights) Game.

And yes, d3 seems too passive.
