I don't like 6... e5. Kinda makes your fianchetto'd bishop, which you took so much time to develop, weak. I used to fianchetto a lot way back when, but I stopped because the middle would always become too congested. Now I'm a little better and can anticipate if I'm gonna get it blocked in.
Originally posted by rotkDon't worry, I just dropped a queen today (also dropping me below 1700) in a completely won game. I saw it as I moved and frantically hit escape. I guess it's time to implement a forced break between a move and pressing submit.
I suppose this isn't something I should be mentioning, but you know how they say you learn something new every time you lose. Than I just learned a 100 new things, I can't recall them at the moment though.
quite bad for an 1800 player,
