Mar-24-04  AdrianP: Two nice wins for Black in the Accelerated Fianchetto at Corus:

Nijboer vs Tiviakov, 2004
H Hamdouchi vs Tiviakov, 2004

Mar-24-04  ruylopez900: Is the Accelerated Fianchetto also known as the Accelerated Dragon? Or is that something different?
Mar-24-04  AdrianP: <Ruy> Accelerated Fianchetto = Accelerated Dragon...
Mar-24-04  ruylopez900: Alright, thanks for clearing that up =D
Oct-23-05  Greginctw: whats with blacks terrible percentage? I know absolutely nothing about this opening, someone care to explain why its so bad?
Oct-24-05  who: Though the opening explorer shows that in fact black's percentage from this position is quite low, the percentage given up top doesn't indicate that. The percentage up top is only talking about games that don't fit into another catagory. Thus games that continue with 5...Bg7 (the most natural and common move) will fall under (B38), (B39), (B37), or (E95) (don't ask), but not under this catagory. Games that continue with 5...Nf6 6.Nc3 could be labelled as any one of a number of games (depending on the continuation). Games that continue 5...d6 also have a number of possibilities depending on the continuation.
Oct-26-05  Greginctw: I dont get it. You gave the B38 and b39 (which are just expanded b37 right) but those have terrible percentages too. It seems like a terribly weak system from the stats.
