This one has a unique twist. Enjoy & learn.


White to move :)

A bit tricky due to all the pieces involved, but keep your priorities straight and you will be fine.

Game Analysis

1. e4 c6 – Well Anand means well…he at least hopes for a dynamic E4 game..
2. d4 d5 – Caro Kann, how adventurous of Carlsen! He should have a medal for braveness.
3. Nc3 dxe4 – sigh
4. Nxe4 Bf5 – double sigh..
5. Ng3 Bg6 – Where have I seen these moves before? Oh only in 99% of all Caro Kann games..
6. h4 h6 – These moves just confirms that openings are just burping of canned stale information..
7. Nf3 e6 – Anand on the move again with his knight. Wonder if this one has any shiny armour!
8. Ne5 Bh7 –
9. Bd3 Bxd3 – Anand with three light pieces out and Carlsen just one. Caro Kann knew his shit, though.
10. Qxd3 Nd7 –
11. f4 Bb4+ – Ok finally a move of aggression from Anand. Followed by a bishop check. Odd move. White just strengthen his pawnformation in my opinion. Queen is less mobile however after the c3 move though.

12. c3 Be7 –
13. Bd2 Ngf6 –
14. O-O-O O-O- Long Castling for white, attempting assymmetry. Where there is a will there is a way. Normally. Carlsen accepts challenge. Now we are talking!

15. Ne4 Nxe4 – Knight exchanges, yes definately wise. They could be tricky jesters in this position.
16. Qxe4 Nxe5-
17. fxe5 Qd5 – Opening up rook and bishop file towards the black kings fortress. Anand is ahead for sure. But wait Carlsen wants to get even and force draw exchanges.

18. Qxd5 cxd5 – And succeeds with that plan. Sigh.
19. h5 b5 – Is this going to be a rally towards each king? Chicken race sort of?
20. Rh3 a5 –
21. Rf1 Rac8 – Oh yes! My mouth is watering!
22. Rg3 Kh7 .
23. Rgf3 Kg8 – This could be intriguing. However Carlsen really feels safe here.
24. Rg3 Kh7 Repeated moves. A draw. Neither had the guts to call the other and play their cards.
25. Rgf3 Kg8 1/2-1/2

Game Conclusion:

They are both safe players who don’t take any unnecessary uncalculated risks. If they had continued this game it would be very unsure but very interesting for us to see who actually would win the chicken race..had they continued. As it turned out both turned chicken! Quaack! Quaack! And lost quite a bit of appreciation from their fans surely.Hope they both shape up quickly.

Blitz. Black forfeits on time.Black has 2062 in rating.

Here is the idea of my ny new opening:
To use the advanced rookpawns as a stronghold to attack White from the flanks. To be able to quickly advance the 6 light pieces into play from the edges and at the same time use the diagonal bishop power (fianchetto) to exert power on White’s superior center. To use the ridiculule effect as a psychological power against human play. The opening moves are after all the joke of all chessers in the world. Until now!

12 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching You will see that the play will quickly turn into assymetric play with a chance for black to actually get a rook line straight towards the white’s king.
12 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching The knights seemingly weird in the edge but in some moves later at the VERY CENTER of action in next moves.
11 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching Also the edge pawns strengthens black in some key positions at the frontier and neutralize Whites normal attack moves a4 and h4.
10 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching THe bishops can be flexibly posted at initial position or at fianchetto holes or at a6 or h6 or shift focus to the other direction.
9 minutes ago · Edited · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching They get into the action very quick.
9 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching Yes the black King is the sad story of the opening BUT – so far no piece managed to check it early and take use of that weakness. It will be interesting to see if it can be later or not.
8 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching A king does not have to castle. It is my firm believe that it is often a stupid move to use the tempo of castling routinedly in so many openings. It gives the opponent an attack target too early for no reason.
7 minutes ago · – Robert S. Hedlerfog – Chess Development Study/Coaching Queen is very quickly set into play and can be used to attack or to defend the king. In the first game it took center position first. A sign of strength.

If you try this new opening out and got recorded quality games with it, please send them to me so I can include them in the ongoing opening research. I will mention the names of all quality contributors.

Thank You! Kind Regards, Robert Hedlerfog
