    I play 1.Nf3 in blitz and my opponent leaves.

    Do you think this acceptable or just plain rude?

    Is 1. Nf3 so tricky? (You can after all reply with anything!)

    maybe your move triggered a nervous reaction and your opponent was suddenly reminded to feed his horses.

    He knows you've read Richard Reti's Modern Ideas in Chess, and he very appropriately resigns.

    It is at least a moral victory, and a substantial one at that, in that you effectively made him resign with your first move!

    You mean at a blitz site?
    Yes, it's rude.

    If I don't mind being rude the blitz sites is a perfect tool of training.
    If I want to train, say, Kings-gambit accepted, I start game with 1.e4 If he is not respnding with 1...e5 then I quit, starting a new game until I find an opponent answering my e4 with e5. I continue with 2.f4 If he is not responding with exf4 then I quit, starting a new game until I find an opponent answering my f4 with exf4. And so on.
    There will be many quittings, but enough KGA to give me the training I want.

    But certainly rude.

    Not rude. Its a blitz site you're going to find a game no matter what. Thats like saying its rude for someone to change their mind.

    1.Nf3 g5!? 2.Nxg5 e5



    Use to get played a by a couple of players in the Edinburgh league
    with some good results.

    They use to conjure up some incredible postions. Certainly not the kind
    the White player was expecting when he played 1.Nf3.

    Great for blitz or even with a quick league TC,
    But totally useless at Net CC.

    And yet there is a player called Medievalist (1837) who has won a
    few times with it.

    This is not one of his but it's a good example of an active attitude
    v a placid player. White appears to do nothing wrong. Then the tactics start.

    I say again, this is not what White expected when he played 1.Nf3.

    Black's 25...Rxg5! Good move, No messing about.
