    The opening moves are....

    1.e4 e6
    2.d4 d6 (what chess master calls French defense normal variation)
    3.d5? what is this? and ...e5? anyone know what this opening is?

    Looks like a philidor advance from a french?

    It probably doesn't have a name because no master has ever played it! Why should white mess up those strong centre pawns?
