So here's the other 6th move. Nothing surprising though now I'll avoid transposing to the first game. I think in principle castling before a5 would have been a better move order anyway.

No No U can play if u want. AFAIK U wont b able to play last game still.
If want to continue plz continue.

The line I played in the other game wasn't the only one, I already saw how that went, so I'm interested in seeing another one. Specially if it was a fluke (if I trivially equalize without using more than 12 minutes with another line, that'd be something.) Still haven't switched on an engine and will not do it until the book is over, so that's your chance to find a hole in it and win.

> If want to continue plz continue.


I continued with 6...O-O, it's your turn.

The position is nearly equal out from the opening.
There is nothing white or black can do unless one does a mistake.
The finite advantage is purely strategical.
Parent - - By Uly (Gold) Date 2020-05-01 05:55
Okay, but I was under the impression that someone using maximum time on the clock, let's say, 6 days per move, could over-run someone that just copied moves like a parrot from a book. It seems that at least in the Italian black has equalized so much that this can be done without getting smashed, but I do hope you prove me wrong (since I was mentioning the Italian because I couldn't do it myself.)
Parent - - By Master Om (Bronze) Date 2020-05-01 14:32

> could over-run someone that just copied moves like a parrot from a book.


You are forgetting the effort that goes into book making.
A book move is always statistically correct move if database contains good games even if blitz ones too.

> It seems that at least in the Italian black has equalized so much that this can be done without getting smashed,


Not only in Italian, I can play Najdorf out of the book  dead equal. So is catalan and grunfeld.

Maybe we can try that later on, you copy moves from your book without further analysis and I try to find a hole in some variation.

Meanwhile, still waiting for white's reply.

That's an extraordinary claim! My eval from the opening position is 0.03, I still haven't found a line for a 0.04 advantage, so it'd be cool if Bc4 actually overtook my evals with an advantage like that.

Heh, this last week I found an attack on the queen's gambit that made my eval of the opening position 0.07, as all defenses were refuted above that score. I guess any claim I make can be short-lived.

What I said back in May 23 :lol:

I'm gonna go ahead and offer draw. While I claim black has the edge here, because white has more ways to go wrong than black, it's unrealistic to expect that you'd slip, so this could be it.

There is nothing both sides can do.

Wrong. Both side can go wrong. had It been Otb its hard for black to defend rather than for white.

I can continue if u want.

Still draw Accepted.

Yeah, but in a new game. Would you be interested in trying a different line of this busted Italian? (since your score was 0.20 you probably had other 0.19 positions you can try) or would you want to try something else?

It seems our biggest disagreement for analysis is this one:

I have 4.Ng5! with a clear advantage for white, while when we played it your variation with best eval was 4.d3 (transposing to variations where Bc5 is played before Nf6). I'd like to convince you that Ng5 is best so we can try it later on.

I have gone through it deeply. Its same as d3. there no such advantage afaik cc games are concerned.
I will play black here.
