Polish-Orangutan-Sokolsky-Hunt Perfection

Updated: Feb 12, 2023

Polish Opening also called as orangutan opening whose most famous use was by Tartakower against Maroczy in the New York 1924 Chess tournament on March 21, 1924. This opening seems to have been suggested by an orangutan named “Susan” and hence the name. The polish opening involves white to attack forth black along the flanks with white preventing black’s immediate centralisation of the knight to c6. This opening is opposed to the general rule for centralisation of the pieces with white developing the queen side flank attack.
