    Mainly by default, Weyer is gone, not playing. So how long will it be before they prove him to be using engines? I bet they are looking closely at his games. Might even be for real.

    Gentlemen, gentlemen, please let us not get ahead of ourselves, what is the style of the new King? It was well known that Weyers had a very positional style, he in fact played the French against e4 exclusively and in a similar vein, played the same pawn formation against the queens gambit and other queens pawn openings exclusively, usually reaching queens gambit declined positions. Has anyone checked the new Kings games, what is his style?

    Looks to me like a 1. e4 player opting for classical play. I am following the game between Capa and Mariska Angela closely ...

    If i've used the explorer thingy right - then he favours 1 d4 ( 39 out of 47 games ) , he then likes to play Bf4 - so not one of the most popular openings by the book !
