Anybody play this opening and/or have experience with it? I just purchased Tony Kosten's "Dynamic English" and have been playing around with the opening. I like the ideas behind it and flexibility, but I'm new to it and still making quite a few mistakes. Just looking for comments on players who implement this system. Also for any pitfalls to avoid.
A couple things if you could touch on...1)still a little confused when to occupy d5 in some positions, though Kosten helps a bit with this, It hasn't sunk in yet. 2) I get a little hung up on when to play e3 or e4 at times when my opponent is out of book. Sometimes when a direct e4 makes sense to me it seems to be the wrong choice. I don't have any specific examples; if I find a game of mine where this happens I'll post it.
