  An Englishman: Good Evening: Always enjoy watching my beloved Botvinnik Formation (c5, e5, g6) collect another win, esp. when it includes sacrifices of two pawns and the Exchange.

  morfishine: <An Englishman> Last week, your "beloved" was the Winawer; and before that, your "beloved" was the Nimzo-Indian

How many "beloveds" do you have?


May-30-17  FairyPromotion: How about:
Winaver against 1. e4
Nimzo against 1. d4
Botvinnik against 1. c4

  Sally Simpson: 'Ding....Yu Fang' (think Addams family)

Would not look out of place in a text book showing a practical example from play of advanced pawns beating a Rook and how far back Ding spotted this idea.

(Not that it really matters but if I recall correctly 'The Englishman' [Good Evening by the way] also favours the beloved Caro Kann. I always read his posts as he usually makes good points and I'm sure I've seen this a few times.)

  jith1207: What's the problem with beloveds.

when people don't get that annoyed when one has many 'behateds'!

  An Englishman: Good Evening: <morfishine>, the openings that loved me best consisted of the English in general and the Botvinnik in particular, the Caro-Kann, the Nimzo-Indian, and believe it or not, Anderssen's Attack (1.a3). Did I really mention the Winawar last week? Perhaps I strayed a little...

  morfishine: <An Englishman> My mistake possibly mentioning the Winawer, but at least for me, when it comes to using the term "beloved", no matter in what reference to, there's only one
