    Anybody know if the a name of this opening? Most said that this position does not exist or it is wrong habit to use? Someone say that is Czyzewski Opening.

    How it's possible?

    Apparently, according to the above link it is the 'Bednikova Opening'.
    Not sure if that is the official name.

    After 1.e4 e5 it could have gone into a Ruy Lopez and 1b3 is the Larsen. (after Bent Larsen.)

    So how's about 'The Ruy Larsen.' or 'The Larsen Lopez' or 'The Bent Lopez.'

    1b3 is the Nimzo-Larsen opening. So this is Nimzo-Larsen Lopez (NLL or N2L) attack with white, and with black is the N2L defense

    I believe e3 is the preferred move over d3.

    But hey, what do I know, I switched to b4!

    1.b3 was tried today by Jobava (he's not the guy you can ironic) in the FIDE Grand Prix tournament.

    The game hasn't finished as I type this, so here is a link to it rather than the moves:
