I do a weekly study about weird openings for my team (I love to play unusual openings), and I am trying to find new bizarre openings to look at. Anyone with any weird openings they like to play and would be willing to share?
I already have studies for the St. George's Defense, Polish defense, Zilbermints gambit, Balogh defense, Freak Attack, Kuprechik Sicilian, Myers attack (2. a4, not 2. h4), Monkey's Bum, Alapin opening, and Ponziani opening, and the dreaded Hammerschlag.
I would be very grateful for any additional weird openings.
The bongcloud opening 1.f3
go check "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Chess Openings" by William Aramil
The Fritz Variaton and the Traxler Counterattack are both fun ways to meet 4.Ng5 in the Two Knights Defense.
They are also not that terrible as they may seem!
I've long maintained that:
1. e4 e5
2. Nf3 Nf6
3. Nxe5 d6
(Petrov: Cochrane's Gambit)
...is one of the most chessiest chess openings that ever chessed for <15 0 time controls and the <2100 rating bracket.
have you tries the Amar opening: crazy cat variation?
1.f3 e5 2.Nh3 d5
The Belgrade Gambit can be fun. 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Nc3 Nf6 4. d4 exd4 5.Nd5
The Delayed Wing Gambit versus the Sicilian has produced some interesting and wild games for me as well. 1.e4 c5 2.a3 then following up with b4.
Try the Grob on White, its actually a decent opening I use it almost every chance I get on white.
What is that variation of a flanked bishop and kingside castling which also includes ridiculous looking f3, Nh3, Nf2, which all elite hyper bullet players use all the time, which makes it impossible to attack that structure with St. George attack?
Does that have a name? Pinguin plays that in like every game with both colors when he is playing hyper bullet.
