drunknight II: No, Ben that name has too many words in it. Most openings have one or two words and are based on a region. You could call it the Sahara Opening because it is so barren. Or Antartica because nothing is happening. Something like that.

drunknight II: all this talk about principles what is wrong w/ simply recapturing: 35 Kxg1?
   Jul-17-03 Reshevsky vs Fischer, 1956 (replies)
drunknight II: it seems that except for the passed a pawn the position is balanced. if everything else came off the board, white would win because the a pawn cant be stop. (and the K is too far away) therefore, blocking the a pawn makes sense, but crafty finds a way to fork the R. I wonder ...

drunknight II: I think the statistics for this opening show a shockingly high number of wins for white and losses for black.

drunknight II: what is wrong w/ 24...QxQ 25 Rxd8+ Qf8?
   Jul-17-03 Y Shabanov vs Kramnik, 1990 (replies)
drunknight II: I know, oftentimes I feel that I will run out of space when I play it. SOme of the best games ever played black loses and it's like he's in a traffic jam. Well the French is like that too, but no one complains about that. Nooooo.

drunknight II: well I see your pt but I dont think the game was lost on move 9. the game appears to be quite even for most of the game except for one positional problem. There is going to be a passed pawn on the k side. If the game was reduced to Rook and pawns, normally this pawn would not ...

drunknight II: Well okay but...whenever we say "with hindsight" it oftentimes means that we dont want to really look hard at the moves that follow and we want to take the easy way out. I mean really, okay 4...BxN but is that really where Euwe loses the game? If that is the case, then I think
