    Used to play it all the time before switching to Q Indian and Benoni.

    My OTB rating was higher then so perhaps its time I switched back.

    I can't see an obvious win for white except better play generally.

    It seems a slow deterioation of whites position and a few strategic mistakes. BXR on move 32/33 in not payable because of QXP+ forking the Rook.

    There was a really good video by Roman D on openings and as Black he suggested the Nizmo/Bogo vs 1.d4 . I've used it since and I like it also.

    I don't have time right now but you can check out my games. I'm sure you will find several of those. I wish Rhp would sort the games by openings for you or give you the opening code at least to make finding games easier.

    I notice that eveybody thinks that you are a great tactician. so knowing this I would recomend the Grunfeld defence with d5 instead of d6 like the normal kings indian.

    Or, for white, the King's Gambit. Woo!

    I have played it a couple of times in OTB and there is not much theory black just attacks whites pawn center and when that falls white is lost or if white holds onto it and simplifies black is lost.

    I have played against the kings gambit once and the problem is if black can simplify he has an easy win which I got.

    Haha..if Fischer couldn't do it then it can't be too easy to do that now can it? Are you sure you didn't happen to win because your opponent hung a couple of pieces?

    I said that if black is allowed to simplify and no he didn't hang pieces but he did make a blunder in the endgame which I was winning anyways.
