Re: Levy's interview on Chessbase about ICGA/rybka

Because first of all, if I have a rule 2 I must guarantee that this rule is enforcable right from the start and not 10 years later. Otherwise no interesting sport . If you didnt have exact rules for the famous 2 condition then after many years you cant reopen the case. Damn right, we also wouldn't ...

Re: Levy's interview on Chessbase about ICGA/rybka

Levy: So much of the pro-Rajlich rhetoric on the forums, and some of the questions in this interview, seem to be aimed at nothing more than discrediting people. Neither the forum postings nor the questions in this interview have seriously questioned the accuracy of the evidence examined by the pane...

Re: Does anyone have analyses/theory in this position?

This opening is not from any openings book, ... Oh yes, it is: Have a look at the books from John Emms, "Beating 1e4 e5" and "Attacking with 1 e4". By the way 5. f4 is not bad at all. I think 5. f4 is bad, maybe not in the game losing sense but in the same sense that the goring gambit or the morra ...

Re: Does anyone have analyses/theory in this position?

I'll have a look into Marin's "Beating the Open Games" when I'm back home. I believe that 2. Nc3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Bc5 is part of his recommended repertoire. Well well well, it turns out that I've played 1. d4 for too long :D Marin recommends 3...Nf6, commenting that "this is more restricting than 3...Bc5...

Re: Does anyone have analyses/theory in this position?

There is also a "trap " I have played many times, and won them all these times. After 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3 Nc6 3.Bc4 Bc5 , What do you think you should play? Ah, 4. Qg4 Nd4, the Vienna Poisoned Pawn :D But doesn't 4. Qg4 give the advantage back to black? It would be stupid for black to respond with 4... N...

Re: Does anyone have analyses/theory in this position?

The first diagram is wrong. White has just played f4 and so it's black's move. What's best then for black here: [D]rnbqk2r/ppp2ppp/3p1n2/2b1p3/2B1PP2/2NP4/PPP3PP/R1BQK1NR b KQkq f3 0 5 You're right Louis! Ethan, Are you sure this position is theory ? It seems already incorrect, and after 5 moves bl...

Re: Does anyone have analyses/theory in this position?

From the start position I think just developing with Nf3 is best. These kind of positions where black seems ahead in tempi without obviously bad developing moves from white usually means that very quickly black will find himself over extended. If Nf3 and then black Knight goes to g4 then rf1! Ok bl...
