View Full Version : openings
Nov 21, 2000, 09:47 PM
i consider myself to be pretty solid in chess openins. i have a basic knowledge of at least everone. i am now just starting to get into the world of gambits.
for anyonw who plays chess, what opening do you use, or what opening do you like to use?
i like a mix between scotch/danish gambit/italian. im wondering if anyone knows what im talking about<IMG SRC="http://forums.civfanatics.com/smilies/cwm30.gif" border=0> the main line is:
7.o-o(castle kingside. queenside is o-o-o)
of course, black does not always do that, and white is down 2 pawns, but it is worth it for the development.
what do you guys think? post other ideas here.

I don't know what you're talking about, but I want to. If you guys play chess regularly, I'll read some of my chess books at home and give you a few games. I don't know anything now, but I learn new things quickly, so if you fancy teaching me....
(PS I know how to play, but not any 'moves')

i guess the reason why i became a conservative was, i dont like big gov. and i think democrats are stupid. (no offense to any democrats out there http://forums.civfanatics.com/wink.gif). my parents are republicans, so i sort of followed them too. i wrote a big thing on taxes, in your real world forum, but couldnt post it http://forums.civfanatics.com/frown.gif
if i were to teach you anything in chess, it would have to be in a game. if you want a few good books to read, get Yasser Seirawan's series, published by microsoft. they are good.
A hard-core conservative.

hey, this description applies to me also. I haven't read any chess book and don't know fancy names for those moves. I was the president & best player of my high school chess club. <IMG SRC="http://forums.civfanatics.com/smilies/cwm16.gif" border=0> It's been a while since I last play it...

. I never progressed beyond begineer. Against much better player, I do not attack, but build a solid defense in the middle and one side with interlocking fields of fire, and see hold long it takes the opponent to batter their way thru it. Sometimes they foul up and hurt themselves so back I can counterattack with supiror force.
