  Phony Benoni: A variation on the old attempted trap 1.e4 Nf6 2.Nc3 d5 3.e5 Ne4 4.Nce2, when the Black knight can escape with proper play. Here, on the other hand. 5...c5 was definitely improper play.

  whiteshark: There are eight squares available for ♘ in the center:

- 4 ahead,
- 4 backwards,
- 4 to the left and
- 4 to the right

and none is really an option here.

  whiteshark: <roastedrook: <... special ...>>

Thinking about the length of the game, it's a rather short one. :D

Aug-25-10  Shams: Even without the trap black's game is just worse after 4.Nce2.

<whiteshark> 4+4+4+4 = 8? You should work for a government budget office. :)

Jul-28-12  vinidivici: lol....the knight is a hero. Sacrificing itself in the opening. Too bad the rest of the kingdom too coward to keep the war on.
Jul-28-12  Abdel Irada: Actually, Shams, as long as Black doesn't fall into the trap, this opening line should lead to equality. It is, of course, a very sharp and tricky line, and Black has far more opportunities to go astray than does the first player. This is among the reasons why the Alekhine is a risky choice unless one is prepared to calculate complex tactics.
Jul-28-12  Shams: <Abdel> Thank you, looking back now I think I must have been thinking of the lines after <3...Ne4 4.Nce2>. Do you also think Black is fine there if he avoids traps?

I love your posts by the way. A belated welcome to the site.

Jul-28-12  Abdel Irada: <Shams>:

I thank you for the welcome and the sunshine.

Jul-28-12  chessicle: Can't remember what Black has to do here; blocking c5 doesn't seem to be it, though.
Jul-29-12  Abdel Irada: Note for those who wondered: "Shams" is Arabic for "sun."
Jul-29-12  Shams: <"Shams" is Arabic for "sun."> I was a member of this site for three years before I knew that. Occasionally players try to chat online with me in Arabic, which of course is a non-starter.
Jul-30-12  Abdel Irada: Ah. Then I'll just have to teach you Arabic.

(Just as soon as I learn it myself.)
