27 ( +1 | -1 ) i give up lol ...i switched to adding the first 3 moves to the title to give people a hint or atleast direct them in the way of the najdorf and i still get about 1/10 that actually pays attention and plays it ...
once again anyone that wants to najdorf me , send the challenge !
46 ( +1 | -1 ) just doesn't always workI wanted to practice against Nimzo and was surprised when my opponent played d5. I don't know why players do this - they could join a different game. Maybe some day there would be a way of starting the first moves of a game so a player joining would have to make those moves to join. Possibly if more of us took paid membership Mike would have more time to install these sort of "extras."
P.S. I also assume you are interested in the "poisoned pawn" after the following:
6. Bg5 e6 7. f4 Qb6
but that b2 pawn isn't all that... ;o)
18 ( +1 | -1 ) Thanks for the challenges ...well i didnt intend really to play the poisoned pawn specifically , but rather to try to play as many najdorf games as i could to get the feel for the game the opening plays .
7 ( +1 | -1 ) I'm learning (as always), and I don't mind what happens after move 5. :)
