Member since Nov-06-02 · Last seen Dec-11-11
Still exploring opening systems that beginners can easily pick up. I've personally converted from 1.e4 to 1.d4 and now I think 1.c4 is the simplest for newbies to appreciate, and I play it a lot myself. I think I'll really stick to 1.c4 because I can appreciate it with fundamental opening ideas.

When it comes to defending 1.e4, I always like to 'play it lazy' with 1...e6. My usual setup goes 1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.Nc3ord2 dxe4 4.Nxe4 Be7, spending tempo to get rid of traditional positional weakness in the opening.

ongyj: Can Black play 32...Rxh6 ? What will happen then?
   Mar-30-10 M Kravtsiv vs Wei Ming Kevin Goh, 2008
ongyj: I'm just wondering if 9.Ne5 instead would be better for White, because it will then invite Black to play 9...Qf6 to guard against 10.Qh4+ Anyone? But 9.Nxd4 played here is very good as well.

ongyj: <kingfu> I guess I didn't see the point in your post. So you're just trying to say how awesome Kasparov was and how great Carlsen is. No problem with that. But if you're trying to bait people into playing 1.e4 or 1.something else other than 1.d4 that's not really a convincing ...
   Oct-04-09 E Limp vs A Rodriguez Vila, 2001 (replies)
ongyj: WOW to everyone who managed to solve this. Not sure if it's worth a mention, but a 'straightforward move' like 24.Rxc7 seems to fail to 24...Bd8. (Not checked with Engine, just feeling, could be wrong on that)

ongyj: Happy Birthday, GM Hikaru Nakamura. May you continue to amaze us with your brilliant chess in the days ahead ^Ô^
   Dec-05-08 Vasyl Ivanchuk (replies)
ongyj: Well, on behalf of Ivanchuk, if he's not "in the right state of mind" when he commited a "crime", surely that's to be taken into consideration when the verdict is to be announced? I mean everyone present at the playing hall can witness that he's "not behaving normally" after the final

ongyj: <Once> Thanks alot. Greatly appreciated.
   Nov-22-08 Kasparov vs Piket, 1997 (replies)
ongyj: <Terry McCracken> So what's the draw for Black after 27.Qxg6?! Clearly, I'm not checking with any programme, neither can I see that far. Thanks in advance.
   Nov-05-08 Glek vs S Arkhipov, 2001 (replies)
ongyj: Does the inferior-looking 14.exd6 also work? For instance 14...Qxd6 15.c4 ?
