    I quite like this for black...

    1 d4 e5 2 dxe5 d6 3 exd6 Bxd6

    I hate d4 d5 games, so hard to get even, this seems to gives black quite a few tactical chances especially when i get 2 rooks to the centre. Plus gives a cheap attack on the queen in blitz. Will post a few games when I have some worth it.



    Any of you have some examples?

    Hi

    (you do realise you have just told 19,000 chess players
    that you do not like playing against 1.d4)

    Picked this up from the RHP database.

    kristina90 - HangemHigh RHP 2007.

    HangemHigh has played a few games with this defence/gambit/attack.

    (I don't mind so much now I've found this 🙂 )

    Thats nice, I've seen a lot of lines whith Qe7 and 0-0-0 are played setting up a discovered attack with the bishop... see the same attack there just a bit later 🙂

    Looked at the Englund gambit but seems like a trap line you do or don't know...
    d6 seems more sound

    So you like the Blackburne Hartlaub Gambit

    Then you will love the Hartlaub Blackburne Gambit

    Can't resist that Morphy can you, Greenpawn?
  7. 26 Aug '10 19:57
    Hi GP. - That;s Morphy's 'opera' game, isn't it?
  8. 27 Aug '10 00:45
    Yup.

    Just showing what would have happened if Count Isouard
    has tried this instead of the Philidor.

    Count Isouard was French so it was most likely he who opted
    for the Phildor. The Duke was a German.

    Here is a morror image of the Morphy game from Edward Winter's
    site with all the background info on the most famous game of chess in history.

    Nice posts. Here is a crap game but it shows the first 8 moves i like in this line,
    find people play similar to this...

    [Event "uChess rated"]
    [Site "www.uchess.com"]
    [Date "2010.9.5"]
    [Round "?"]
    [White "priscilla"]
    [Black "Black Star"]
    [Result "0-1"]



    The benefits i see are... black avoids a d4,d5 game ..
    -but also e4 is attacked.
    -black has lots of opportunities to pin on the e and d files
    -gets 2 tempo from bxd6 and white having to defend his queen after 0-0-0
    ( a pawn is worth 3? )

    in that game i think 9...h5 was cheap and doesn't show what the opening does... but it was blitz.

    Any of you have some games on this line.... what would you do to counter it?

    I of course have seen that game...


    But, without remembering that when I went into the thread I wondered what black would do after n-f3 or even e4 (although after thinking about it for a moment the e4 idea doesn't work out quite as well as I thought because after my idea of b-c4 or n-f3 then f6 was possible). At any rate after n-f3 I don't think black is getting what he is really looking for.

    Black To Move





    Here is how we got here

    I am guessing Rxe2+ and it can't be taken because the queen is lost.

    Is it? I can only assume you mean Rxe2+ 13. Kxe2 Nd4+?... 14 Qxd4. There must be something more subtle than my eye can spot (which, to be honest, isn't unusual).

    Of course you are right, I was looking at Rxe2+ followed by Bd3+ just giving both my rook and bishop and getting a great attack but I can't make that line work.

    My line is 1.d4 e5 2.dxe d6 3.e4 Nc6 4. f4 and then just leave the pawn on e5- play nf3, 0-0 etc and have a development lead and a nice center. Don't know what it's called but works nicely.
