    I plan to play a new system, which has no name for now, so let's just call it yugi system or sophie system. But the name no matter.



    Here white has the basic formation for the system. anyone can brings some tought to this.


    It just look crazy enough, but I love that hyper modern way of playing from both side.
    But the only lines I saw my friend play are b3 and g3 and I believe this must developped as I planned to use this system in real OTB tournament.

    But now, I see i have no goal....

    Except I wouldn't play 1...d6 as black.

    I believe it is a bit slow for white, especially as you will have to push two other pawns to develop your bishops...

    The White formation reminds me of a rabbit.Perhaps that's a good name for it.The Rabbit Attack/System/Variation.

    That's about all the help I can offer

    I don't like it. Your pushing both your c and f pawns...redundant IMO.

    Going to take too long for you to develop your other pieces.


    Blacks d6 was bad, should have played d5 or something else rather. It's too passive.


    IMO just learn a good opening. It will teach you a lot of the fundamentals.

    I know about the fondamentals, I just control the center from the side...

    with pawns on c4 and f4, and knights then with fianchettos..

    Have you tried out this opening? Worth trying.Play in a game- you will find out the problems in this opening, does it go with your style of play, etc

    I agree with the others. Black playing 1...d5 will make the c4 pawn push problematic, and having to make 4 pawn moves to develop/fianchetto the bishops is slow. Also this might create castling problems. I'm not a fan of this idea, but it would be interesting to see how you do with the idea in some games.

    Here's the problems:
    1 Castling
    2 Two bad bishops
    3 Too passive
    4 The minute you get an aggressive opponent ready to pounce on your weakening kingside wirh f-pawn push you're toast!

    The most common reply from black is d5.
  11. 14 Jun '09 17:13
    black also has the gambit of e5 followed by f6 which develops him very fast and leaves white defending. Learn the main line and you'll do fine.

    I'm still pretty green so I may be wrong, but is that the Pirc that black is opening with?

    Yes that's the Pirc move order.
  14. 14 Jun '09 19:15 / 1 edit
    Typically the Pirc is

    1.e4...d6,
    2.d4...Nf6
    3.Nc3...g6,
    4.f4 or Nf3 or Be3....white has a few options here

    I wouldn't go so far to say 1...d6 is bad. Something like 1.f4 d6 2.Nf3 Nf6 3.c4 e5 4.fxe5 dxe5 and it will be blacks d file vs whites f file.


    My point in my original post is that you can't have a "system" when natural moves by black stop the "system"
