Why wouldn't you put all your pawns on the 6th?
What's the hedgehog? Is that an opening? The animal is cute though
The hedgehog is good.
The hedgehog is an opening (pawns a6,b6,d6,e6,Bb7,Be7,Nf6 and so on...) which is played against the English often.
Not only against the English, also from the Sicilian, from the Queen's Indian Defence... It is very versatile, but you must like cramped positions.
I love playing the hedgehog. if you wanna get really good at it, i’d recommend reading sergey shipov’s massive 2 volume (over 600 pages each book) study of the complete hedgehog. your timing of the breaks will improve dramatically, as will your ability to bounce between plans and poke your opponent. when you harass your opponent just enough you can induce him to react which is when you strike most powerfully hehe. good luck! it’s a great and versatile opening structure.
hope this helps!
Of course Mihai Suba has to be mentioned, the godfather of the Hedgehog. See his Hedgehog book and „Modern Chess Strategy“.
Just for the reason of bragging: I survived the famous German Hedgehog hunter GM Espig.
why would you quit THIS?????
it's a real opening lol lichess.org/9VpWxGfgi6LJ
just tried a practice game w/t it and probably going to play it in online fast t/c
I know I made blunders probably
i get why grandmas would tell you to quit the hedgehog, boomers don't understand dynamicism of pawn play. @billy_eyelashhh
