Well, if nothing else we are all learning some Dutch language here, if not much abut the Dutch Defence ...
  

If sometimes we fly too close to the sun, at least this shows we are spreading our wings.

1.c4 f5 2.b4 is an attempt by White to strike hard with few brains   

@I suppose, that someone calling himself striking hard, few brains, can take a little mocking

Of course!! next time i will call myself.... striking hard, few brains. I suppose that most people wil understand my jokes!!

Laziness. Is this better?

The correct answer to Castlerock's Gambit should be, from an esthetical point of view, 3...d5!

After 1.c4 f5 2.b4 Nf6 play will transpose to some regular Dutch as soon White plays either d3 or d4. But 1.c4 f5 2.b4 e5 3.Bb2 is probably an improved Sokolsky - compare 1.b4 e5.

  

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

MNb, why did you modify your original post? Posting it separately would have made a better reading, particularly since you fininshed it with *chess stuff* and not just a joke.

Good one, Castlerock!  I think this gambit has great promise.   Wink

Alas, the only problem I have is that my opponents are too "chicken" to play the manly 2...g5.  In fact, when I reproach my opponents for avoiding this most glorious gambit, they try to play off their yellow cowardice as ignorance!  The nerve!

Just joking.

Is it not English, Dutch, Orangutang?

1.c4 f5 2.b4 g5 would be English, Dutch, Orangutang, Borg

1.c4 f5 2.b4 g5 3.e4 is CASTLEROCK'S GAMBIT IN ENGLISH, DUTCH, ORANGUTANG, BORG.

I'll be soon starting a poll in Flank Openings Forum so that MNb cannot call for a boycott.

Cordially

Castlerock.

P.S.
No offense meant to the original poster our guest or for that matter, to  any of the regulars. Just couldn't help it.
