What do people think about these lines for black in QGA??
1d4 d5 2.c4 dxc4 3. Nf3 Nf6 e3 Bg4! 5 bc4 e6 if 6. Qb3 Bxf3 7. Gxf3 c5! Qxb7 nbd7 9dxc5 Bxc5 10f4 o-o 11Nc3NB6 12Bb3 Nbd5 13 Nxd5 Nxd5 14 Bd2 Rb8 15 qa6 and qf6!? Keeping tension.
If 6.h3 Bh5 7. Qb3 Bxf3 8. Gxf3 c5 9. Qxb7 Nbd7
If 6nbd2 then a6 7o-o Nc6 8.b3 Bd6 9.Bb2 0-0 10 h3 Bh5 11.Be2 Qe7
To add or as alternative to Benko. You sac material, open lines, active pieces!!! Same as Benko but less to learn....?
If 1d4 d5 2. C4 dxc4 3. E4!! Nc6! 4. Nf3 Nf6!!
Lines from Delchev and Semkos book Understanding QGA.
It was a little hard to understand you in today’s lecture about when opponent has the initiative. What were the rules again? I tried to watch the replay but still had some trouble understanding you.
It sounded like you said change game force? I got the exchange pieces.
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. d4 exd4 4. Nxd4 Qf6 5. Nf3 Bc5 6. Nc3 Nd4 7. Nd5 Nxf3+ 8. Qxf3 Qxf3
Is what we played. Should I have played 6.Bg5?
If 6. Bg5 isn’t b2 hanging or is there trap?
And yes I messed up by not capturing...Nxf3 with pawn on g2. This was not my best game I was a little intemidated by my opponent rating and also ended up playing real-time both I shouldn’t have done.
For me it's bobby fischer. There is one similarity between him and me. He only loved chess in his whole life and same with me. I love chess more than anything. Another thing I noticed that he was an introvert personality and same with me. Another thing similar to him and me was study whole day like he did . nowadays I have time issues otherwise when I was beginner I studied 18 hrs a day and gained 120 points in one event after 2 month of prep.
I just love him.
I like to make small videos of my games and post them in Facebook when I win. Just like a memory for my self or something like that. The nice thing is Facebook shows me the posts I made from a year ago on the same day. This is really cool because I see my old games. I been watching how I used to play compared to the games I have today and I can see a huge improvement. Thank You ChessMood!
Um I am following latest events in midnight nowadays. I was watching live commentary of singufiled cup 2019. Both Anand and Magnus missed retreating moves. How is it possible?
I meant they are top players in the world but still why it's hard for them to find a backward piece move?
Yes from the very beginning we learnt to move pieces forward but is there is no solution of this issue about finding backward moves in tactical or strategical positions?
Any book which covers puzzles or strategies based on backward moves?
Can anyone suggest a line for white against Benko Gambit?
I know plans from black side but confused which line is fine for white to hold.
I just do not feel comterble with g3 lines bec black's put so much pressure and I cant handle it well.
I like the e4 Bxf1 line now.
I need suggestions as white because I am preparing d4 too.
