Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-07-03  Benjamin Lau: This is probably what Kasparov and Fischer meant by "analyzing chess to death." It's hard to look at this "opening" and not believe that you're not very close to (if not at) the endgame.
Aug-07-03  Benjamin Lau: It is worth noting that black's win percentage is absolutely zero, which is quite surprising considering how bare the chess board is (not many tactics really possible; little pressure). The 0% is also astonishing given that the QGD is favorable for black at the endgame (and usually unfavorable during the middlegame) because black often retains the c pawn and as a result, has the queenside majority which can sometimes be exploited into passing a pawn.
Aug-07-03  ughaibu: Even in the 1920s Capablanca said chess was played out, he tried to promote a variant with two extra pieces (I think).
Aug-07-03  Benjamin Lau: No ughaibu, you're right. I think the added pieces were the "archbishop" and the "chancellor." Something like that. One moved like a rook/knight hybrid I think. I think the other moved like a bishop/knight hybrid. In either case, the variant was not widely accepted. At the time, only Capablanca appeared to agree that chess was getting dull.
Aug-07-03  myratingstinks: This is baffling to me! ZERO?!?!?! The black players listed aren't slouches either. However, I would like to see a larger sample size.
Aug-07-03  refutor: this shows a good example of what needs to be improved in this database...games in the 70s, 80s and 90s. there are no games between 1970 and 2001 played in this variation?! that seems unusual, even for a little played variation. to anyone who has some games collections, please try and contribute games of second tier GMs from the 70s, 80s, 90s
Aug-07-03  ksadler: I threw some wins for Black in a few weeks ago...I figure it is just a matter of time until they are in there.
