Default Sick of players who INSIST on playing *BOOK* openings


You posted this same game twice as examples of how well you do with this
"opening". I am assuming this is the solitary win...out of how many games?

Scott,

I don't see how this games illustrates your claim that peeple who just
memorize openings get confused when out of book. Your oppenent played
the opening well enough to have a winning advantage by move 11. The
three main mistakes that your opponent made were well into the
middlegame, if not the ending:
1) Black should have played 21...Bxd3 winning a pawn and the
exchange.
2) Black played 24...f6?, which loses a pawn. Better was 24...Rd4
follwed up by 25...Kf8 (overprotecting e7 and freeing the Re8.
3) Black hung a piece with 32...Kg7. Instead 32...Bxg6 gives Black

a solid pawn plus, which shouls still be enough to win.

I would say if you are playing e4 then Ke2 and Ke3 and still winning, then
your opponents aren't strong enough.

You should find stronger opponents, then try that opening and see what
happens..

I have found a lot of players (at least online) - only play book
openings from memory - and when things deviate drastically from what
they are used to (especially in a 5-min game) - they can be easily
defeated. As a test I have gone on to various chess playing sites and
opened my game with 1. e4 * 2. ke2 * 3. ke3 * etc. and won the games
90% of the time. After my silly moves they tend to overextend and I
then play in a more traditional and aggressive fashion.
