   Feb-28-09 Scandinavian (B01) (replies)
alter: thanks. i've been looking at 3...Qd8 recently - i can't really see that there is much wrong with it. in fact, if you intend to follow up with a set-up with c6/Bf5/e6 then you have an easy to learn and low maintenance system vs 1.e4. what Fine had to say (in "Ideas...") about the ...
   Aug-03-07 Nimzovich-Larsen Attack (A01) (replies)
alter: There is a good collection of 1.b3 and 1.Nf3/2.b3 games which has been set up on this site by willyfly. Go to Morphy vs Owen 1858 and you can access the collection from there. Basically it is all(?) of the games in Keene's book. Regarding savagerules comment on Black adopting a KID ...

   Jul-02-07 Uncommon King's Pawn Opening (B00) (replies)
alter: B00 covers a lot of supposedly inferior responses to 1.e4 but the consensus seems to be that 1...b6 is the best. Additionally, 1...b6 is the "uncommon" response which is most often used by GMs, and not without good reason. Incidentally, in the game below, 3...f6 is complete nonsense, ...
   Jul-02-07 John Owen (replies)
alter: The interesting thing about John Owen is that he had a good understanding of ideas that were well ahead of his time, e.g. the importance of centre pawns and the bishop pair. But despite his impressive wins it has to be admitted that some of Owen's games are not very good . All in all ...
