From my research the English opening (1.c4!) seems a good
first move in top level chess. Although the fundamental differences
between various opening moves are small (*), and a good GM
obviously also tries to look at what the opponent usually plays,
or knows (repertoire). Yet fundamentally, it also matters to know
how theory develops, for example:
1.c4 e5 (1...c6 leads to Slav) 2. Nc3 Nf6 3. g3! Bb4! (3...Bc5 4.Nf3! e4 5.Nd4 0-0 6.Bg2 Bxc3 7.dxc3 d6 8.0-0 Re8 9.Nc2
and White maintains a slight advantage.
Yes folks, we now have achieved nr one position in standard chess on FICS (the Free American Chess Server) with my own repertoire (with Arena interface & Shredder engine) So.. the repertoire as described in my book now has been verified in ''real life'' as well.
while my blog only seems to receive attention from some ladies(?) trying to invite me for some ''free'' dating sites, i'm still planning to finalize the book ''a better repertoire'', and then probably publish it via POD (printing on demand) methods, and/or maybe via a publisher.
anyone interested in cooperating in this effort, either as ghost writer, chess analyst, or publisher is welcome to reply; yes and dating sites as well, but i will not bother to use a credit card for such things, you know.. :-)
