Hey Katar- that's the first time I've seen that move though it has been played before. I'm not sure it's a great line for Black- White has scored well though there aren't many games. The usual response for White is 4.d4 and although Blackburne turned it into a real gambit after something like 4...exd4 5. c3 it seems that the modern way to treat 3...f5!? is as in the following game:



At any rate, thanks for bringing it to my attention; if someone played that against me before now, I would have probably frozen in my tracks as it looks quite dangerous. Good game by you, BTW!

i think 3...f5?! should get a dubious mark and should be called the "improved Latvian"! LOL :)
actually i had a closer look at my 3/0 game and it was pretty sloppy on both sides! :shock: :oops:

You deserve a lot of credit for your work on this line. I found myself reading your article again a couple weeks ago. Great stuff! I wonder if we could create a 1.e4 Frankenstein repertoire based solely on CV.tv videos by different people...

Thanks Katar- your encouragement, as well from as a few other good souls here, has given me the strength to carry on. Much appreciated! :D

We talked about Jobava's recent Tayler game in the Tata Steel Tournament. Well, he actually employed it again in round 1 of the ongoing Bronstein Memorial, and quite successfully (now 2/2 with it).



Maybe kamus can shed some light on this c3-variation (on that note, I should refresh my memory and rewatch this video). Seems to me like a Spanish Smyslov with the Be2 instead of b5. With that connection in mind, maybe Black should have opted for Nge7.

Sadly, I must report that I only know the Tayler variation with the lines starting with 4.d4. The traditional theoretical view of the more normal Inverted Hungarian (as played by Tartakower and a few other older masters and now Jobava) is that the line is solid but a bit unenterprising. Stil,l it's possible that given how neglected this line is and that probably no one has taken a serious look at it since the advent of computers, that there may well be new discoveries within it. Perhaps Jobava has found some of these already or perhaps he's just trying to find a solid line that skirts his opponent's preparation. In any event, I will be following his employment of the opening with great interest. Thanks for posting the game, Fox.

More please! Pure masterclass.

Got to say, all the white moves seem natural and sensible, simple development, safe king, and play in the centre.

I'm curious Pobble- did you happen to know John Tayler? I found very little about him when I was researching my article on the Tayler. He read Mathematics at Oxford, was a strong county player (around 200 BCF), was apparently something of a mad genius- very intense, sometimes difficult to get on with and that's the sum total of what I know about him. Mark Hebden knew him, according to one of my sources- I wrote to Mark requesting info but he never replied.

Sorry Kamus, not as far as I recollect.
