    im from the Philippines.

  7. Exhaust your opponent with positional play just like vintage FC Barcelona. Fitting name for the opening.

  19. what happens if black sets up the bishop + queen cannon on your light squared bishop

  20. I always run into the issue of blasting out moves with-out truly digesting what my opponents position is and the implications of my "knee-jerk" responses. I guess this is the hazard of playing 3 minute games.
