Talk:Fabuloso Friday 2/Fabuloso Chess

Another place to talk so Ze cannot read it?

Does anyone have a forum? Irc? I'll set up an IRC channel but a forum would be much better. The IRC channel for Fabuloso Chess can be found at #Fabuloso -Edi

Wouldn't Ze just be able to log in to the IRC channel, or read the forum? He's just as anonymous as the rest of us. In either case, we'll have to collaborate and confirm our moves on the wiki at some point. Let's just play so well that even though he knows what we're planning, he can't stop it. -RJC

Suggested Moves

Aim for a Slav or Semi-Slav defense. This often leads to tactical, fun games. -- likesforests

1. ... d5 2. c4 c6

  • I think d5 is the best course of action. It threatens the center without allowing Ze to do anything crazy like capture the king pawn on an e5 move. Follow that up with e6 and we have open diagonal with a good position. BTW is anyone concerned that Ze can read all of our strategies? ~Mec

(good point, Mec... can we make a password protected page? haha ;-) -adam)

  • 1. ... d5 blah!!! This is a fun game, let's pick a fun opening. A gambit, or something out of the ordinary. Benko, Open Lennengrad, anything but aiming for conventional play territory.
    • d5 is a good move and playing collaboratively will be hard enough. Why not postpone the wacky options for a couple of moves so we don't lose horribly?
      • d5 probably should be our move, yes, collaborative chess, hmmm, perhaps we should nominate a few good chess playing sports racers who know what's going on with the game, rather than collaboration - too many cooks really do spoil the broth after all Mayorcj 14:54, 23 June 2006 (PDT)
        • d5 all the way. winning IS fun.bobbie_mac
          • Totally. Dot dot dot d5! Yeolde 18:07, 23 June 2006 (PDT)

KP to K5

  • First!! How are we going to do this? We're white right? KP2 to KP4 Will that work?
    • The Problem with this move is that we are not white, Ze is, also, in Chess notation, whichever notation we use, it will be numbered 8 to 1 - meaning your move would be described as KP7 to KP 5. That would also give Ze an easy capture, so I'm going to say no on this one.
      • so you're saying you don't like that move then?
  • I dunno... my middle name isn't "checkmate" or even "it's a contact rash", but I have always been partial to KP7 to KP6 in order to keep the lines open for both the queen and the bishop.
  • i think that sounds like a decent move KP7 to KP6.

D7 to D5

  • I don't play alot of chess, but this move seems logical, have our pawn meet his.
  • I think this is referred to as the "Sportinski Kozimov Hard Charging Opener Blitzkrieg".


1 ... Nf6

  • I like 1 ... d5 as well, but moving the Knight to f6 will prevent Ze from moving to e4, and set up a fianchetto for our kingside bishop. A lot of possibility there without too much risk.

F7 to F5

good solid move its way to early in the game to matter anyways

C7 to C5

This might show how long it's been since I played chess, but if C7 moves to C5 and then D4 takes C5, the queen has a very good move on the next turn. Again, it's been years...

  • This wouldn't work because it is unlikely the opponent would actually take your piece. Most likely they would reinforce their position incase you take theirs which would leave you in the open and without initiative instead of the opponent. ~Mec

Sport Racer Strategy

May I suggest the possiblity that sport racers don't play chess? I think that we should just pull out a kick-ass powermove on Ze's King, and steal his queen and rooks. Ohhhhh Yeah

(Seriously, who expects a collarborative chess game to go well? It's nice that Ze's building up the social movement thingamabob, but what the hell?)

Pawn to Queen Five

  • I would like to apologize for the whole "pawn to queen five" comment. I just realised this move is impossible for black to make. As for the notation, I suggest algebraic notation (ranks nubered from white's end and files numbered from white's left) as any other form seems to confuse the heck outta me (as shown previously). -Funky Citrus

Strategy Discussion

Be careful out there Ze's middle name is Checkmate for a reason, he even beat his cat Annie once, although to be fair she might not be to good at chess since she tried the Nimzovitch defense against his king pawn opening... See the video of his victory dance afterwards here, click the button for "Proper Training".

Board to make it easier for people to see the game

This should make things a bit easier for sports racers to visualize the game.

Is ze really playing or is it a computer?

Is there any actual way to exclude just Ze from an open conversation about the game?

Pawn Moves

First!! How are we going to do this? We're white right?(no were clearly black because we are moving second) KP2 to KP4 Will that work? (you probably mean e5)

  • 1. d4 d5 - likesforests - aiming for 2. c4 c6, the tactical and fun Slav or Semi-Slav defense
  • 1. d4 e5 - mayorcj 11:05, 23 June 2006 (PDT) - losing a pawn?! - if he takes the pawn he exposes his king and is underdeveloped
  • 1. d4 e6 -
  • 1. d4 f5 -- highly tactical fun game ahead
  • 1. e7-e5 jesse cooper, Nashville Juniors Champion, 2004

Knight Moves

  • Nc6
  • 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 c5 into a benko/volga gambit
