  FSR: I have played this before in online blitz. Of course the Marshall QGD (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6) is not good, and Black's subsequent play makes it even worse. After 7.e4! Black is already dead lost. The crushing 8.Bb5+! is even stronger than the also winning 8.Nc3, which I previously played.
Jun-14-22  Z free or die: Whatever happened to the <Rhine Rule>? (*)

(*) The <Rhine Rule> - for every two online wins <FSR> posts to <CG>, he has to post one loss.

Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: That was never a "rule." But I do have a very interesting recent OTB game that I lost on time like an idiot. So I may post that.
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: My posts on this page rebuking <Z free or die> were censured and my account was suspended. A true double standard exists on this site.

MYOB Z and post your own losses. Oh, you don't play chess... but you insist on telling the rest of us what to do around here.

  MissScarlett: <My posts on this page rebuking <Z free or die> were censured and my account was suspended.>

Censured or censored?

< Oh, you don't play chess... but you insist on telling the rest of us what to do around here.>

That criticism has been cast in my own direction. What's playing chess got to do with it anyway?

Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: Seriously?

It just so happens that I was about to post an Anand link as an example, assuming someone else hasn't already made the correction. What a coincidence.

I do try to avoid typos, thanks for the correction.

This sight is too cowardly to come forth in the light of day and censure someone. It censors SOME of us without warning while others can torch the place at will.

The real question is... "Will this website work today?"

Premium Chessgames Member
  MissScarlett: What or who is stopping you from posting your Anand link?
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: It's already posted. There's always a lag of 10, 20, 30 minutes whenever I kibitz. The site doesn't allow my posts to go straight to the top. Inspector Clouseau wants to read them first. It's so bad of me to be an excessive chess contributor.
Jun-16-22  Z free or die: Poor old bear thinks himself singled out.

Shucks, who would dare pick on such a "friendly" bear?


Jun-16-22  Z free or die: I bearly could disagree more - as in more scatology... hidden behind a soliticious complient in usual aw-shucks passive/aggressive fashion.

But who are we to believe?

<<tpstar> Disagree. <zanzibar>'s identity was revealed two years ago, if you were paying attention, then he hasn't used the <z> handle in over a year. He was one of the strongest players here, FIDE 2400, frequently posting puzzles and combinations.>

The truth is out there...

Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: Divide that 2400 in two and you get a guy, calls himself <perfidious>, thinks he could play a little.
Jun-16-22  Z free or die: Ha.

And let's just say for, that neither <tpstar> nor <fred> have it right (but certainly <tpstar> was far closer to the "truth" than snaggle-puss).

'Of course the Marshall QGD (1.d4 d5 2.c4 Nf6) is not good...'

It's OK if you follow up 3.cxd5

click for larger view

with 3...c6

The majority of players do not take on c6 but play 4.Nc3

Then after 4...cxd5 you are in the exchange Slav and your opponent may not play line v the Slav whereas you (hopefully) will be booked up it as you will if they are one of the few who take on c6. (5 v 967 on here have played it, see the explorer link. Opening Explorer )

Premium Chessgames Member
  Sally Simpson: See above...

This site is worrying, it took 5-6 attempts to post that 'This Site Cannot Reched' - This Site is off line and the board turned a very pale blue.

  fredthebear: More Z squalor 6/18/22.

I respond 6/18/22 and I'm censored again.

Your personal bias shows badly <MS>. Big lip xy tries desperately to troll me, but he can't cut it. So, you bail the fool out of his self-inflicted embarrassment by deleting my post.

Wise up, do your job FAIRLY, and put an end to his trolling. Stop allowing useless Z scribbles. When you stop his pathetic trolling, the problem goes away. I'm not going to stay silent and allow that igit to smear my name.

You can start by deleting the z posts above.

  FSR: <Sally Simpson> White has to take on c6 if he wants a real advantage. I wouldn't dream of wimping out with 4.Nc3.

You are completely misinterpreting that Opening Explorer result! The vast majority of those 967 games where White "declined the pawn" with 4.Nc3 were reached <by transposition>. The 3...c6 gambit was played only seven times in the database. White accepted the gambit in five of those seven games, scoring three wins and two draws in those games. One high-level game that was drawn is E Vorobiov vs Zvjaginsev, 2008.
