May-13-05  cade: Don't try this opening at home kids.
May-13-05  hintza: Or anywhere else!
Jul-02-05  Knight13: I tried this opening once in a 5 min blitz game and I won.... But I don't like the opening, though. It's bad. Just tried it for a test.
Nov-02-05  schnarre: Somebody's played this stuff besides me!?!?!?!
May-18-06  firefight: Black got too cocky with a the blunder rook sac 26. ... Rxf4
Jun-27-06  blingice: This first move has been played in four different games in this database. All of them are wins for white:

G Welling vs S Horvath, 1996
G Welling vs T Szakall, 1996
G Minchev vs O Santana, 1987

And this one.

Jul-21-06  Dick Brain: I have evidence that this is the best game ever played

  Joshka: I do love the name "Sodium Attack" though:-).......what's also true is that basically a master could play this opening against any player under probably 2000 and still win:-)
Jan-16-07  The Chess Express: I'm not a fan of black's way of handling white's opening. After 10. ... Rd8 black has the quintessential perfect opening position, but there is no way for black to break through white's pawn wall. Against white's defensive posture I'd prefer to have either c5 or f5 thrown in at some point. That way black can have something to push through with. Chess is a strange game indeed...


Jan-16-07  The Chess Express: <what's also true is that basically a master could play this opening against any player under probably 2000 and still win>

Ugh...Stefan Docx was rated 2205 in this game.


Jan-17-07  fgh: <Dick Brain>: I'am very interested to hear. Can you please tell us?
May-04-07  The Chess Express: I think he said that tongue in cheek.
Jul-07-07  realbrob: What a humiliation for Black... He was beaten by White after such a horrible opening!

Anyway, Docx managed to lose this game because he was too passive.

Jul-08-07  The Chess Express: <realbrob> Indeed, he seemed to move mechanically and without a plan. Interestingly enough the position after 1. d4 Na6 2. e4 Na6 is one of the more common unorthodox openings.

After 3. Nf3 black should play d5 and not g6. Check out

  Phony Benoni: Openings nomenclature is daft at times. If 1.Na3 is the Sodium Attack, why isn't 1.Nh3 the Ammonia Attack?

To be even more obscure, the Advance French (1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3.e5) could be called the Carbon Dioxide Attack, but I'll leave that for you to figure out.

Jul-14-07  The Chess Express: <Correction> That line was supposed to read 1. d4 Na6 2. e4 c6 or 1. e4 c6 2. d4 Na6.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: I was brought up believing that 1.Na3 was the Durkin Attack and 1.Nh3 was the Paris Attack. So of this game it can truly be said that it's rather Durkin Paris tonight.

Mar-24-08  The Chess Express: It also has some similarities with the hippo.
Jan-03-09  WhiteRook48: 1. Na3 is not the Durkin Attack. It's the sodium attack. The symbol for sodium is Na.
Nov-23-09  The Chess Express: How about we call it the triple sodium attack?
Jan-27-14  parisattack: I guess you can't believe everything Reinfeld says.

  Korora: White's opening was so weak that Black got overconfident?
