24 ( +1 | -1 ) do white are better ?I would like to know why white are better : ( excuse my english I am french ) 1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6 3 Bc4 Bc5 4 c3 Nf6 5 d4 e5xd4 6 c3xd4 Bb4 + 7 Nc3 Nxe4 8 O-O NxNc3 9 b2xNc3 Bxc3 10 Qb3 O-O (not Bxa1 because 11.Bxf7+ Kf8 12.Bg5 Ne7 13. f1-e1 and the black queen is lost)
27 ( +1 | -1 ) Bonjour, je suis cajunD'abord, l'ouverture jouée est peu commune, le piano de Guioco. Elle mène à une ouverture non équilibrée où le noir ne gagne pas la commande du centre. Alors le noir a un mauvais évêque fermé à clef sur ses propres places. Le bout, noir ne prend pas des morceaux quand il a l'occasion de gagner le territoire.
19 ( +1 | -1 ) StockscalperThat opening is not the Giuoco Piano, it is the Moeller attack, in the Italian game. Giuoco Piano doesn't features d2-d4, but d2-d3 and a slower developement ("giuoco piano" = slow game).
62 ( +1 | -1 ) Madcow:9...Bxc3 after 8...Nxc3 hasn't been mentioned, and is different from 8...Bxc3 and 9...Nxc3
First of all, after 8...Bxc3, correct is 9.d5, and White has only a slight minus. 9.bxc3 is very questionable, since after the correct 9...d5! Black takes the upper hand. 9...Nxc3 is obviously wrong :)
In your second game, an Englund Gambit, best is 5.Bd2; all other moves lose material. Anyway, after 5...Qxb2 6.Nc3! followed by Ra1-b1-b3 and e2-e4, White stands better.
Once an amateur played with me 5.Nc3, interesting at fast chess because after 5...Qxf4 6.Nd5 White got some play.
1.e4 e5, 2.Nf3 Nc6, 3.Bc4 Bc5, 4.c3 is called "Giuoco Piano" (slow game) 1.e4 e5, 2.Nf3 Nc6, 3.Bc4 Bc5, 4.d3 is called "Giuoco Pianissimo" (very slow game).
P.S.: Chi va piano, va sano e va lontano.
35 ( +1 | -1 ) 13. Ne5!I think Brunetti is right when he says that 10....d5 is the strongest continuation for black. However, if black is greedy and plays 10...Bxa1 he is going down fast; 11.Bxf7 Kf8 12. Bg5 Ne7 13. Ne5! (as mentioned above 13. Re1 would leave black with enough compensation for his queen). The game could continue 13. ...Bxd4 14. Bg6 d5 15.Qf3 Bf5 16.Bxf5 Bxe5 17.Be6 Bf6 18.Bxf6 Ke8 19. Bxg7 1-0
