I have stated here how much I enjoy playing the CaroKann Advance Bayonet variation and I now have found several different lines that Numpty chess engine does not cope well with.
I must state though that overall Numpty is pretty good in this variation & I certainly do not win against Numpty all the time-do not worry Chris T if you have seen this!
Anyway I have put this latest variation in as a video made with MS ExpressionEncoder+Screencapture.

Well it appears quite sometime since my last post!
I have still been playing chess since my last post with mixed success.
I am disappointed my 5 min blitz rating still remains lower than I want.
My opening play is generally reasonable though there are parts that still need study but I feel it is my middle and endgame I have to do better with and also I need to play more quickly!
Anyway I will try & put more effort into understanding the mid & end games. Meanwhile I keep sparring away with my favourite & great chess engine Numpty. When I play the Scotch opening Numpty often plays the Malanuik variation Bb4+. This can then transpose into other variations depending how play goes. I still haven’t mastered this opening variation as white & usually Numpty beats me in this variation.
My favourite white opening against Numpty remains the g4 Bayonet variation of the Advance CaroKann. I have found some areas that Numpty doesn’t like in this variation & it has been interesting playing this against Numpty.
Here then are x2 recent games vs Numpty. First a win for me in the CaroKann g4 Bayonet var & then a win for Numpty in the Scotch Malanuik variation (transposed to Tartakower var). Enjoy…
Game1: RPD vs Numpty CaroKann adv g4 bayonet var 1-0
Game 2: Scotch Malanuik var (transposed to Tartakower var) 0-1
