  1. It would be very interesting to see a similar analysis of the Sodium Attack (Durkins) from you! There is practically no information on YouTube on this opening with a detailed story about tactics. I understand that these openings are unpopular and cause contempt from the masters. However, for fun they are quite acceptable…

  2. The Lemming defense is a very poor move, not saying that because I care about the center, but really, because the only purpose of this move was actually to get out of book opening very quickly. The story goes is that back in 19 whatever, a player named van geet, I believe, used this opening against the chess engine nightmare. (I believe that is what it was called), and guess what, he lost. The idea of this move was the trick the computer into getting out of the book. However, like with stock fish today do you really think that getting out of opening quickly Will let you defeat it?However, it is slightly better than Nh6

  3. This is my new opening against e4 but can I play it against d4 @ChessGeek?
