Risky opening

The games played with Black by Tomas Civin are worth a glance, nice to see this opening at this level (quite hard to play for sure)


Maybe a thematic tournament to follow :)

Modern Defence

1. e4 g6 2. d4 Bg7 could be the theme.

GM Suba

GM Suba said to this kind of position: Black is better, because he can improve his position. White cannot, because he has already the best possible position :-)

Very nice alternative

The Modern Defense is a very nice way to avoid playing always e4 c5 as black

One famous person, I forgot his name, once said about life in general: "Variety is the spice of life."

So why not some variety also amongst the chess top levels! ;-)

I've played the Modern, also known as the Hippopotamus because it lies low in the water, waiting for its prey to make a mistake.

I have both won and been smothered with it. Black must strike quickly, at exactly the right time and place, or die a horrible death ;-)

Risky Opening

There is a 200 ELO TER difference, I suspect that is enough 4 sure, I will watch with interest.

Modern isn't the Hippopotamus

Modern isn't the Hippopotamus.

Only Hippopotamus is a system of the Modern.

I'll never play a thematic tournament Hippopotamus
