1.e4 e5 2.Bb5...

IMO it is completely sound. ;)

1.e4 e5 2.Bb5

I added better (IMO) answer to 1.e4 e5 2.Bb5 c6 3.Ba4 Nf6 4.Qe2
It's 4.. d5 5.exd5 Bd6

Black has comfortable play after it.
It doesn't mean that black wins. :)

Portuguese Oppening

I've a lot of cc games with this oppening. Some very hard. I'm (i hoppe) finishing the investigation of the line with Qe2. "I added better (IMO) answer to 1.e4 e5 2.Bb5 c6 3.Ba4 Nf6 4.Qe2 It's 4.. d5 5.exd5 Bd6" I've a game with this line in ICCF. When i find the solution to that line i tell you. If you wana, create a tournament with this oppening to us play.

That's funny to see how this thematic tournament (portuguese opening) attracted players from Portugal.

I wonder if french players would fight for french defense the same... :-)

A high-rated one with a very strong correspondence chess player !
