This is street chess. 2.f5
Edit: if you're unfamiliar with the rules each piece can move one square off a regular move.
Edit 2: but captures and checks can only be done with regular moves.

never the less, its argued that it actually controls more squares than 1.e4 as the e
pawn is unprotected and open to attack. My conclusion is that 1.d4 is for control
Originally posted by Trev33What have you tried against it so far? I'm currently using the Grunfeld, which I'm actually beginning to really enjoy. In the past I found the Benko Gambit to be quite solid, although I never could manage to get too much of an edge, perhaps I just didn't understand the resulting postions well enough. I also tried the KID for a while but found little success with it unfortunately.
