what are the best chess defences lately I have been thinking what the best defence is.

defense to what? you have to be more specific.

Sorry about the reps... ...but my piece of junk computer is playing all kinds of games with me!

if you want something easy ... just go with the Benko gambit, or the Budapest gambit.

I'm kidding You can define BEST many ways .. those two are quite complex tactically and have lots of room for work in new theory.

I like the French Defense against e4 .. very solid, although somewhat restrictive.

Against d4 I like Queen's Gambits

Best defenses Although I may not be in the same league (skill
wise) as some of you: I like the Caro-Kann,
the "Orthodox" defense with the Queen's Gambit,
and now and then -- some variations of the
Sicilian (like the Najdorf Variation)
I started playing at this site not very long ago.
"They" started me out with "ELO 1200" ---
I must have been playing weaker players -- and
am now up to an even "1400". Lately, playing some
"better" players --- so I WILL lose, eventually!

I think ... EDMASTER plays the best defense OTB as he puts it:

Reply to "King of Pawns" I'm not very used to this site -- but, by looking
at the "handles" "EDMASTER" and "King of
Pawns"; I assume it's the same person. And,
if we were to play a game: You probably WOULD:
I played you (as you know) a couple of times
at the "itsyourturn" site --- and you took me
fairly easily ------

Hi justholdingon! I'm not EDMASTER and I'm sure he would not want us
confused! I'm glad to see you here. This is a great site
with some really good players. As you will see,
Brunetti is about to crush my skull in one of our games
and maybe the other one eventually.

Short note to "King of Pawns" Hi there:
at least that's cleared up (confusion - by me -
about two names in one message) I will find out,
eventually, how to correspond directly (privately)
with others -- like you. Thanks for your last
