Originally posted by Mephisto2This was my first guess as to move order as well, and I consider it the most likely order.
1.d4 e6 2.e4 Nf6 could also be transposition from a black attempt to leave the options open between a French and a Nimzo or Queens Indian (if white had played 2.c4)
Originally posted by National Master DaleWhen White plays 3. Bg5 it becomes the Trompowsky Attack otherwise it is not a booked opening.
I wonder what folks might think without knowing the move order that reached this position.[fen]rnbqkb1r/pppp1ppp/4pn2/8/3PP3/8/PPP2PPP/RNBQKBNR[/fen]
Originally posted by National Master Daleummm did not master Reti also have that very same dream? Perhaps it was he who appeared to you in the dream? i hate it when my opponents play 1.Nf3, how are you supposed to employ a gambit with that? if anyone knows a National Master Dale anti 1.Nf3 gambit can they let me know!
Yesterday I was playing coffee shop chess against tough opposition and today I have developed an improvement for my 1.e3 opening.....
That improvement is...the envelope please
Here is your envelope with the improvement the move is 1.Nf3
That`s the 1.e3 improvement I`ve dreamt up today.
