58 ( +1 | -1 ) Info on chess openingsgibo: You might want to take a look at www.chessgames.com/perl/explorer. You will find some common lines there, but you won't get any other evaluation of lines than winning percentages in a database. Winning percentages will not tell the whole story behind a line. Winning percentages doesn't tell you anything about player strength, or about recent developments for this opening.
40 ( +1 | -1 ) chessgames.com is a good site.. no doubt used by many when playing here... I dont use it for my games though because I wont learn so well... and I recommend keeping clean!! Myself, I feel I need I need to get better at openings ... and I find that making mistakes is the most valuable lesson you can get...you dont forget those bad games!,,, because it hurts so bad to lose :o( !
21 ( +1 | -1 ) NiC has a pretty good suggestionIn the Caro-Kahn Advance variation, there is an articol on the move 4.Be3 (after 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5). It's somewhat interesting and it let's you avoid learning tomes of theory on the over-agressive 4.Nc3, while retaining a chance on obtaining an edge.
