Very interesting. Definately worth trying out. I guess I'll have to start playing 1. e4 again though...


Thank you my friend, what are you currently playing? I think you play catalan correct!? :D


Yeah, some sort of Catalan / Reti stuff. You've got a good memory :) !
I'll be playing blitz with 1. e4 though, and play main lines instead of anti-systems :). Wait... that means I have to face the ridiculous 1... e6 :(... If you don't mind me asking, what do you play against the French? I mean, the Anthology of Chess Combinations, then the theory of critical positions... you seem to be full of good ideas :P.

:D HI I caught out Kingsblade with this line after Ne5 he played Bh7. However couldn't Black reply Qd6 defending the B and if NxB sure White has the B pair but Blacks Kside pawns are intact. here is the final position:

It appears that black is losing an exchange at least as KxN it's mate in 2.

Hello Mr. Salesman,

Please forgive me as the following question is a bit off topic, but I was discussing recently with Julio Becerra the following line that we both play with Black and that you seem to play with White:

1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.d4 exd4 4.Bc4 Nf6 5.e5 d5 6.Bb5 Ne4 7.Nxd4 Bc5 8.Be3 0-0! 9.Nxc6 bxc6 10.Bxc5 Nxc5 11.Bxc6 Rb8 12.Qxd5 Qe7 13.0-0 Ba6 14.Re1 Rxb2 15.Nc3 Rxc2 16.Rac1 Rxc1 17.Rxc1 Rd8 18.Qf3 Nd3 19.Rd1 Nxe5 20.Rxd8+ Qxd8 21.Qd5 Nxc6 22.Qxc6 Bd3 23.Nd5 h6 24.Nxc7 Bb1 25.h3 Bxa2 26.Nb5 a5 27.Nd6 Be6 28.Qa6 a4 29.Ne4 Qd1+ 30.Kh2 Qd4 31.f3 Qb4 32.Nd6 a3 33.Qa8+ Kh7 0-1

Would you be so kind as to share your thoughts on the above line in a Video Lecture or other format.

Regards,

Toppy :)
