    Default Effective Chess Opening And Defenses

    Whats your chess opening? Personally I prefer the Scotch opening. As far as defense goes I am still on the 2 knight and want to move onto either the Scandinavian or the Karacon. The Karacon looks interesting but it looks like a lot fo work to pull off while the Scadinavian is simple but I waste tempo with early queen developement.

    No openings. Like certain pawn moves in certain order where invented by certain people becuase they have certain advantages.

    EX: 1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 thats called the French Defense. The Defense has a main line that goes out to 10 moves and there are other variations spiliting off from it for 10 moves depending on what people actually do. So you could actually be play something straight from a book for 10 moves against someone and they just memorized it.

    I like the opening where you move the pawn up a space. Works out pretty well

    Which pawn? How many spaces? And why? All are questions that must be asked.

    I like the one where you move the pawn to open up the bishop and the queen to checkmate the king in like 4-5 moves or something. The knight can stop it pretty easily though if your opponent isn't retarded, but its a good set up for the rest of the game.

    Thats the bisops opening doing the semi-scholar's mate.

    Since the Scolars is a mate you can do in literally 2 moves.

    Yeah that's the one, it's great because if you can't win in that time you can castle pretty much immediately after.

    fool's mate is pretty hilarious too but i don't use it anymore. it's too disheartening for my opponent plus it's not really fun.

    That'd be pretty classy hobby to take up on the job, makes me think of the kind of thing you'd see in a bridge too far or something.

    I prefer the "Cockslap," where you use just your King to destroy EVERYONE
