    What's the plan?

    Play as normal, but don't take d4. The c3 Pawn will inhibit his ability to develop. Try to cramp him.

    Then the most annoying guys tend to play 4. Nf3, no?

    I don`t know that thousand young d6 is to stop white from `e5ing` blacks knight maybe.

    Proposed set-up



    Please do continue, what a terrific topic I have created on the RHP only chess Forum

    ok um I vote 4...e6
  15. 17 Jan '10 06:10
    Fine with me, what about 5. Bc4 now? I always thought 5. ... Nb6 but there are other possibly far more viable options
