In any case, I was looking at a strong black line in the Euwe defense : 1. Qe2 wont bring anthing either - it is obviously better than 9. The author's database statistics dispute that showing it scoring only 32% and a couple of the other defenses doing somewhat better. Nxe4 in and could not develop his kingside after 5. It also is that my style of play is very different from my student's. And in the Sawyer-Just game, instead of 13 Ne5? As well as in the two side games, he won in a sizzling romantic way, taking into account that in those remote times it was very hard to resist a nice sacrifice and quite rude not to accept it! Kxd1, and Black hastily playing 5. I have had trouble mostly with the variation 1.
Rb1 diagram when black makes an awfull lot of moves with the blackcolored bishop. But Diemer quickly replied with 7. Both games are critical to understanding my gambit against the 7. After which White did not survive longer than 14 moves. Bh6 Here my opponent made a crucial mistake in this complicated position 18.
Bd3 Qb6 with the idea of castling Queenside as a winning plan for Black. Having said that though I do appreciate Reviewer Lev Zilbermints comments on Sawyer's treatment of the Zilbermints gambit. Although these games have been selected for their intrinsic qualities, one may think that, on the other hand, they have limited theoretical interest since the two main lines against the Lemberger clearly remain 4. Qxd1+ just leaves him with a slightly worse ending. Kh1 which is obvioulsy not bad for white. Only when black commits to a move, white then moves its kingside pawns.
Qe1 but not enough for full equality. Bb4 and somehow inverted the roles by presenting White with the possibility of winning a pawn after 5. Be3 and now black can start exchanging toards the endgame with 11. In , Black found the correct recipe: 5. Ne4, and refrains from the natural 11. Bd3 c5 One of the better defensive moves. Be3 Qb6 move order games referred to in the book and White wins 3 of them and should have won the fourth as he blundered in a nearly won postion.
After this White did not play 9. Where concrete play signed White's rout in whereas he had not even developed a single piece!! Kh1 - our last possible line before we burry 8. For this reason I give this book four stars. Bg4+, but quite convincing in after the correct move 5. Nxg6 and I won quickly. First, let me say that the book is quite adequately reviewed by Electra 10, Zilbermints and Ichino.
Is this still playable for white? It's not a great chess book; but it is one that taught me how to play a fun attacking game even if it's often unsound. But can white not improve? He chose the Scandinavian Defence and Queen's Gambit Accepted as Black, and the Blackmar-Diemer gambit as White. Qf3 is the recommended move nowaday 6. From h4 the queen cannot be attacked, exerts some pressure on the enemy kingside, protects e4, enables long castling with annoying pressure on the d-file against the white queen 'through' the d4-bishop and, last but not least, becomes integrated into Black's development in a fluid way. If Black plays h7-h6 or g7-g6, White has the the two bishops and f1-rook to do further damage, for example sacrificing by Bxh6.
True, it doesnt bring equality, but it sure is no refutation as I believed before. The Dutch worldchampion played 6. If we can't find any better continuation for white, then this line seems like a simple continuation for black - allowing him a comfortable draw. Nd6 would have been much stronger, limiting the scope of white's black squared bishop. To learn more, see our. He then gives the continuation 6. Some experts have questioned its objective soundness but there's no doubting its effectiveness over the board, where pressure and a ticking clock often mean it's impossible to find the right defence.
I've been thinking about your method of seeing which moves come naturally to your student and going with that. We will look at possible black moves in my next post. Doesn't that sound like a new morning? Bd6 was covered earlier and provides black only limited chances for equality, provided white chooses the right continuation 11. And also because I never found a good white continuation. I recommend it to every chess keener. White has wasted 2 moves to get to the ideal Euwe defense position Bc4 and Rd1 , whilst black has played the suboptimal c6.
Now I occasionally transpose into it, while playing blitz, when my opponent plays the Scandinavian Defence. Throw this opening at any opponent, regardless of rating. He shows the lines suggested by the computer and its evaluation. I had played many times against this opponent, so I realized he had prepared this line. The main problem of the book is that somehow white always manages to win the game: the author does confess at the end of the bo I really enjoyed this book. I am a devotee of this opening.
