 Post subject: Paleface Attack?!
PostPosted: Sat May 31, 2008 10:50 am 
Just had a rather strange move played against me on Chessworld.net, in what I was hoping would be a nice Kings Indian Defence (I'm black).

1. d4 Nf6
2. f3?!

It seems pretty unsound to me and I can't really see a point to the move, except maybe to support 3.e4 - so I went for the obvious 2...d5 to stop this.

Any thoughts?

Not sure where the name of the attack comes from - to be fair I think Chessworld makes half of them up :roll: I imagined some Cowboy playing it against an Indian "What the hell have you played here Paleface?!" :lol:

Could be that you started an indian defense this is the paleface attack against indians. Sounds stupid but that is the only explanation i could think of. By the the way there is some sort of anti gruenfueld (not really that much anti) 1.d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. f3

I often play the Blackmar-Diemer Gambit (1 d4 d5 2 e4 de 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 f3). 1 d4 Nf6 2 f3 tries to "trick" Black into playing into the BDG. I'm always happy when Black plays 2...d5, because I then play 3 e4, and after 3...de 4 Nc3 I'm into my favorite gambit!

I don't think he had any of that planned, the game ended in a fools mate if I remember right :lol:
