hi james,

im presuming it is still alternate starts with white for the champ.

in that case i submit ..........

1.e4

James Watson

Yep I'm guessing alternating colours is still the go.

I think I'll go with 1.e4 c5

Though you probably know the theory better than I do

Draw offer.

Im going to leave it there.

26.Bxb3 Bxb1 27.Qc3 and probably .... Be4 and its still not a position thay im going to win from.

Thanks for the game. Have fun playing roadrunner.

James Watson
29-07-2013, 03:14 PM
Yeah thanks for the game, that was pretty much the variation I was anticipating.

I'm quite pleased with how that went, when you played the Maroczy I was reasonably comfortable since even though I feel it offers white the better game, I think I understand the positions well enough to feel comfortable with either colour. But I don't like my ...a5 move that much, I was hoping to follow up with ...Bc6, ...Nd7 exchange DSB then relie on the dark squares, but you immediately made it a little awkward with by playing Nd5 immediately. Even though however its difficult for white to try win if black just plays correctly.

Redmond Barry
29-07-2013, 04:47 PM
The gurg seems to be a very solid system for black although i think my opening play could have been improved.

Ill try to pose a few more questions next time.
