Kadas Opening (Deprez Opening) 1.h4 I've been looking at funny variation in the Kadas Opening: the idea is just to play 1.h4, 2.h5 and then 3.h6
I know it looks stupid, and that it is not sound, but just imagine how humiliating it is to loose against something like this :)

I've won with the following line on the internet, twise (blitz):

3.h6 Nxh6
4.d4! ed
5.Bxh6 gh
6.Qxd4 Rg8
7.Nc3 Be6
8.0-0-0
and Black's extra pawn is not worth much

So what do you think? playable?

Playable? The games you quote demonstrate that it is playable. Why White should want to handicap himself is another question. Perhaps some players actually perform better when they're struggling against a disadvantage (mentioning no names ;))
paulvalle 78 ( +1 | -1 )
A nice and fresh game: Just notise how easy the opening plays itself

If you ask me... if black plays exactly, it isn't playable. One pawn less, not developed, weak postion, no, no, can't be playable...
philaretus 27 ( +1 | -1 )
In all the games you quote, Paul, Black seems hypnotised by the idea of playing out both centre pawns. But I'd like to see some analysis of what happens if Black tries a different tack, such as:

1.h4 e5 2.h5 Bc5

3.h6 could then be met by 3...Qf6,

winning, as far as I can see, a sound extra pawn.

Hillarity! I guess he was a bit freaked out by the spike!
philaretus 5 ( +1 | -1 )
The Spike? That's one of the alternative names for Grob's Attack 1.g4.
pbarts89 29 ( +1 | -1 )
Yes it is It's been a long time since I even thought about 1. g4. I', sure this is where I got the idea for the imagery. I meant spike in that he was just marching that pawn into him like a spike or such and the guy panicked. Forgot that I was referencing an actual name.
paulvalle 69 ( +1 | -1 )
my latest loss; Here is a game where I played terrible, but I asked philaretus if I could post it whatever the result was. (I was expecting to win....)

sorry copy-paste error by me.
I'll get my revange in our "Pinova Gambit"-game :)
derolleole 171 ( +1 | -1 )
another one for you, paulvalle I'm playing in an blitz-chess tournament in our club this time, this one really was interesting, alltough there are some bad moves in it:

White: Ole (2028)
Black: Name shouldn't be given, I guess (1939)

1. h4 d5
2. h5 e5
3. h6 Bf5
4. d3 (hxg7 would be possible, too, but I really like this idea of the open line :) Nc6 (he doesn't like it :)
5. g3 Qd7
6. Bg2 Nxh6 (if I want to play a gambit, the opponent should really be polite enough to take the pawn :))
7. Bxc6 gxh6
8. Nd2 Bg7
9. e4 dxe4
10. Nxd4 Bxe4 (I know this guy, he really likes to exchange anything, as he's very strong in endgame)
11. dxe4 (maybe next time I will know what that should be, taking with bishop would have been better, of course) Qxd1 (not really new to me)
12. Rxd1 Rd8
13. c3 (this knight doesn't have to go to d4) Ke7
14. Nf3 Rxd1
15. Kxd1 Rd8 +
16. Kc2 b6
17. Nh4 (with Nf5 + later) Kf6 (o.k., it was too simple for him ;-)
18. f4 Bf8
19. Bf3 (Nf5 should have been made) Ne7
20. Bh5 exf4
21. gxf4 Ng6
22. e5+ Kg7
23. Nf5 Kh8
24. Bxg6 fxg6 (hxg6 must have come to his mind)
25. Nxh6 Kg7
26. Ng4 ? (f5 or a4 would have been better variations, I guess) Be7
27. Nf6 ? (also bad one, but with one minute left I made this one :-) h5 (good answer, but only for me, 27. ... Lxf6 28.exf6 Kg8 was possible)
28. Ne4 Rf8
29. Rf1 h4
30. Kd3 Rf5
31. Ke3 g5
32. Rf2 ? (awwww, I was really shocked about this little blunder of mine) g4 (he hasn't seen it :-)
33. Rg2 g3
34. Kf3 Kh6
35. b3 Rf8
36. Rd2 Rg8
37. Rg2 Kh5 (he shouldn't have moved his king there)
38. f5 Rf8
39. Kf4 Rg8
40. f6 Rg4 + (?) instead Ba3, or Bd8
41. Kf3 (?) (don't ask me please, I know it belongs to f5) Bf8 ? (again Ba3 must be considered)
42. e6 Bh6
43. Sxg3 ! (here he gave up, I could have made this "sac" before, but in this moment it was as effective as possible, I guess)

Hope to help you out a little bit, have some more games, allthough I don't like to annotate and share them too much with others :)

Comfortably dumb, Ole
