    When I open with an English opening.|I have noticed that I tend to block in my bishop on C1.

    Anyone else noticed this?

    yes, cheers.

    It dawned on me. The majority of my Englich openings. I find myself losing timing trying to get my c1 bishop out.

    Just thought ~I would post it to see if people could Identify with this.

    But I suppose I should just look at a database somewhere online to see how other people / grandmasters avoid this problem.

    Because RHP community just seem to want a quick "one liner" for a quick laugh.
