corner open strategy
Posted: Jun 17, 2024, 2:59 PM

upon review of thousands of games, it is apparent that most are centric.meaning that most games revolve/evolve around the keystone.
does anyone have examples of successful corner strategies?
i am familiar w/ r3's open which i guess could be considered a corner open but am unfamiliar w/ any others that one would consider a strong open.
just wondering if we are missing something by dismissing all those unused spaces.

In my first DB loss here (not my first loss here, just the first one by me in the DB) Dmitri King used 1. ... F4 against me. No, I don't think we're missing anything. Just thought I'd mention something that was tried 20+ years ago here.

perhaps i misrepresented the question.
i was more referring to a less extreme corner strategy like perhaps d3.

Like I said, I don't believe there's any magic move out there. F4, D3, E5, C4, whatever. Nothing.
