  1. i used this openingin the open tournament earlier in my region, unfortunately i loss, i am around 1400 and my enemy is around 1800 idk and he kinda know the main but still i gave him a hard time, this opening is very solid like a rock.

  2. "Black's set-up is not the most important thing in the world." I've lived my chess life by this philosophy and, though I've only been playing chess for 3 years, I should break 800 soon. Don't mean to brag.

  3. I experience that people go for your knight on f3 with their bishop take it and win the pawn in the center, i mean i won a lot anyway, but it was annoying to deal with.

  4. D4 players will face a lot of KIDs, it is your job to beat those KIDs.

  5. Dear Gothem: I am playing the English and looking to transpose it into a catalan sometimes. You did not cover the catalan line where bishop pins knight
