It is done.  I have deleted the same message from at least three other threads as well, where I have noticed it.  I'm afraid it took me longer to get to that one due to a profound lack of interest in this junk!

Alumbrado,

Could you delete the message above this? I saw identical message in some other section also. Yaltmax is not around. So GM Kosten has a job cut out!

Should we discuss again, whether to ban guests from posting?

After 1.c4 g5 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c5 4.d5 h6 5.e4 Bxc3+ 6.bxc3 I think Black is fine if he plays more actively than in your analysis: 6.-,Qa5 7.Qc2 e5 and if 8.dxe6 dxe6 9.f4 gxf4 10.Bxf4 Nc6 followed by Bd7 and 0-0-0

I'm sure though that White to reach a comfortable edge against 1.-,g5 some other way(s).

1.c4 g5 is in my opinion much better than 1.Nf3 h6, because in a lot of the resulting positions the move c2-c4 turns out to be negative for white (e.g. in a variation like 1.c4 g5 2.d4 h6 3.Nc3 Bg7 4.e4 c5 5.d5 Bxc3+, which I find is not bad for black at all), while 1.Nf3 is in a way more "natural" and doesn't impede any of the other white pieces. So I suppose I would argue that g5 systems are not a good universal answer to both 1.c4 and 1.Nf3.


Almost all my sources on Myers Opening give 1.c4 g5 2.d4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c5 4.d5 h6 5.e4 Bc3:+ an "!"
But I played the position in online blitz games and came to the conclusion that dynamic factors are more important in this position than the ugly doubled pawns.
Unlike the variation 1.d4 g6 2.c4 Bg7 3.Nc3 c5 4.d5 Bc3:+ 5.bc3: f5! where black's last move takes e4 under control, in Myers Opening black will not be able to prevent white from playing e5 very soon and at the same time finishing his development.
Play could continue 6.bc3: d6 7.f4!? (I think that 7.h4?! is a mistake) gf4: 8.Bf4: Qa5 9.Qc2 Nf6 10.Bd3 Nbd7 11.Nf3 +/- and black has problems because without moving the Knight on d7, he can't finish his development, but if he does so, white will start a strong attack after e4-e5.
So in later games I refrained from 5. ... Bc3:+ and played d6, Nf6, Nbd7 with the idea of establishing a strong black piece on e5.

Did you find mistakes in my analysis?
Or any other opinions?  Smiley

So, Mr MagicParis, what are you going to do when you meet this move ? Demand Black to resign ?

I can give you the opinion of a quite good chess player (thought retired) Kasparov, in the Batsford chess opening (1984) he gives the "analysys" 1.ç4 g5 ? +-

Did anybody here have some experience with the Myers opening 1.c4 g5 ?
Stefan Buecker wrote about it in his latest column "Over the Horizons" at Chesscafe.com and it seems to be quite interesting. Any opinions?
