Unorthodox Openings? recently I've managed to score a draw against a 1900+ using the unorthodox defence "Fishing Hook" var. of the Ruy lopez ( board #3311169 ). My greatest feat to date statistically speaking. My question is how often do unorthodox openings succed against high level players and does anyone else have any experiance w/ unorthodox openings that they could share? or does anyone know of any good unorthodox sites I could use? thanx.

Great game you played there

It's also known as the Berlin Defence as far as I know. :)

Try and get a copy of Jeremy Silman's book Unorthodox Openings. He also has a web site.

Its either silman.com or JeremySilman.com I believe.

Yours wasn't that strange and is an excepted but not too common line in a popular opening. Congrats on a solid game.

missed oppertunity Thank you apastpawn , I wanted to show you this game personally cuz I value your opinion and consider you a coach.

masros messaged me:
Very good game against cian..4..Ng4!!?.I only found two game in my database.Actually you have a good chance to win that game.It's coz u have two connected pass f and g pawn.

can anyone confirm this? did I missout on an easy endgame win based upon the doubled pawn on the queenside? I felt my opponent missed the best move 36.Rf6! since that would have permitted a Q vs. R. endgame in their favor, though I don't know if it would have made a difference.

A closer look. Yes you may have had a better way to handle the two passed pawns. On 32....f2 this loses a bishop just to advance the pawn one space. 32.....Bg6 would of saved her and added one extra piece in the promo. fight.

On 36.Rf6 it is meet by Rh5 and I don't see a Q vs R simplification.

White's glaring mistake was 7.hxg4 taking the "hooked knight" and opening up his h file which makes g3 a necessity next and the f knight falls after.

An unusual opening The Latvian gambit is an extremley sharp and little known opening--- it follows 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 f5!?

This opening has claimed some very big wins over players like Capablanca and Robert Fischer. look here for games: -> www.chessgames.com
