i have % as 54-46.
Parent - - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-04-08 23:20
I knew A Slav setup was in the makings after Mark played Nf3.
Parent - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-04-08 23:28
I have not played NF3 for about 3 years. Time to bring back form the cold.
Parent - - By NATIONAL12 (Gold) [gb] Date 2011-04-08 23:29
i think i have already played slav against Mark.
Parent - - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-04-08 23:33
We may have done with a different move order.
Parent - By NATIONAL12 (Gold) [gb] Date 2011-04-08 23:48
i think it was this game.

1.d4 d5 2.c4 c6 3.Nf3 Nf6 4.e3 e6 ended in a draw,very exciting game.
Parent - - By Mark Eldridge (****) [gb] Date 2011-04-08 23:36
Can you set up a board when you have time please.

i am doing my best to now get away from book lines which as far as i can see are now bsed on Rybka,Rybka may well be right but i am looking at other lines,so you will have to bare with me on this.after my next move it would be interesting to hear Nelsons opinion although i doubt he looks at this thread.
Parent - - By Nelson Hernandez (Gold) [us] Date 2011-04-09 00:21
I look at any message that has "Nelson" in the text.  That's the magic word to invoke my powers.

Unfortunately I am unable to help at the moment as the book is being updated, a process that takes several hours.
Parent - By NATIONAL12 (Gold) [gb] Date 2011-04-09 00:26
you never seace to amaze me Nelson.and i i know i mispelt seace.:smile:
Parent - By NATIONAL12 (Gold) [gb] Date 2011-04-09 00:46
its oh so tempting to go for book recommended move 4...dxc4 esp at this early stage of game and i may yet play it.However you are aware i have many choices.i see the % on books i have and atm all favour move aformentioned.this is part of the fun even if i make a crazy move i have confidence behind it.

its strange,one well respected book does not even consider this move and it has a lot of playchess games in it.other books all give h6 as best move.maybe i have made a ruck but it seems ok to me.

Hi Nelson what are your stats.:smile:
Parent - - By Nelson Hernandez (Gold) [us] Date 2011-04-09 22:51
Negligible.  I have only nine games from here, of which four drew.  Not much help!
Parent - - By NATIONAL12 (Gold) [gb] Date 2011-04-09 22:54
it seems strange that in what i would consider virtual mainline that so few games have been played.maybe it was 5...Bd6.
Parent - - By Nelson Hernandez (Gold) [us] Date 2011-04-09 22:58
Sure was.  That move is played less than 1% of the time.  Yet, it is the only move I have indicated as 'green' (playable) apart from 5...dxc4.  7...Re8 cinched it.  That's a 2% move.

i think we are all out of book now,let the game begin.:smile:.not bad on only move 8.
Parent - By TheHug (Bronze) [us] Date 2011-04-10 08:19
That leaves a lot of room for a non book battle. :smile:
