    Just wondering, does anyone play this opening (for those who don't know 1.d4 e5)?

    As White,I usually play:
    1.d4,e5 2.exd5,Nc6 3.Nf3,Qe7 4.Qd5!?

    (a)4...Nb4 5.Qb4,Nc6 6.Bf4,Qb4ck 7.Nc3
    (b)4...h6 5.Nc3
    (c)4...f6 5.exf6,Nxf6 6.Qb3

    I think that the Hartlaub Gambit (1 d4 e5 2 de d6) gives Black better practical chances than the more common 2...Nc6.
