Originally posted by cmsMasterA player in my sectional switch his opening before the tournament started to avoid players being booked up on him. He chose 1.b3. We had a 4 way tie for first place in that section and there were 6 of us in that section. He was rated around 1730.
I started playing this recently and I think I may make this the opening I focus on for white. I'm usually rated about 1300-1400, so does using this opening seem like a mistake?
