Fried Liver analysis on rybkaforum.net?    (2024-01-16 20:31:54)

The Fried Liver just seems like a bad choice for black when the main line (5... Na5) equalizes, and if you want something different there's 5... b5 wh (...)


Fried Liver analysis on rybkaforum.net?    (2024-01-13 20:47:35)

In that case, I don't think white can improve on the following line (depth 49):

1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6 4. Ng5 d5 5. exd (...)


Fried Liver analysis on rybkaforum.net?    (2024-01-12 22:51:02)

For the 6 lines I posted, those eval depths are, in order:
46, 47, 45, 46, 45, 43.

For the line with the highest eval o (...)


Fried Liver analysis on rybkaforum.net?    (2024-01-12 01:54:00)

The Lolli (6 d4) is no better for white. Black survives in the following line, and white has no other options worth checking.

1 (...)


Fried Liver analysis on rybkaforum.net?    (2024-01-11 23:22:00)

I checked the Fried Liver with Stockfish 16, just far enough to convince myself that black can probably hold the draw. I'll post five key lines along (...)


Next thematic tournament    (2023-08-10 00:48:11)

The Budapest's less respectable cousin. Might just be losing for black but I'm not entirely sure. If engines are allowed, I'm interested. (...)


I did not win a game since 3 years    (2022-11-27 22:06:35)

If you mean John Shaw's book on the King's Gambit, I have that book and he did say that the Bishop's Gambit is refuted. But he qualifies what he means (...)


I did not win a game since 3 years    (2022-11-26 14:55:46)

I couldn't use the link but I found game number 137701. You won against the King's Gambit but your opponent played 3 d4. Which is actually the kind of (...)


I did not win a game since 3 years    (2022-11-25 17:10:39)

What does it even mean to have an advantage? Engine analysis has changed my perspective on this issue. From a human perspective, we can say that white (...)


I did not win a game since 3 years    (2022-11-25 16:20:13)

The problem with the two opening you suggested is that they're too good. Neither side made a mistake, so the engines will hold the draw every time (ba (...)
