Re: Durrr in process of losing 60k+ in a chess bet.. good month for ra




you guys are under estimating the different ways a GM could play to prevent you from simply trading pieces, specifically not using an opening you are familiar with like

e4 e5
nf3 nc6
bc4 nf6

Anybody that doesn't know that opening can't call themselves a competent player. Which side does the GM have in that sequence?

You do make a good point though KKF, one I alluded to earlier, in that the GM would have a harder time compromising the weaker player without a knight as oppopsed to without a rook.

no, i meant the GM wouldnt be playing a simple opening like that which would allow him to just trade pieces. d4 d5 is much harder to play than e5 e4 imho.

i think a rook is more valuable than a knight, not that it matters much because durrr had zero chance.

Ah I see, misread your post. Yeah, you're absolutely right.
