    What is the name of this defense?

    Open a board, and copy the following, I don't know chess notation, if you want to help.

    White:
    1. Pawn to d4 2. Pawn to e4. 3. Anything (say, knight to f3)

    Black:
    1. Pawn to g6. 2. Pawn to d6. 3. bishop to g7.

    1.d4 g6 2.e4 d6 3.Nf3 Bg7

    Modern Defense, maybe transposing into KID.

    Thanks, but any exact name? If I can use it successfully, it has to have a name...I think I have a better winning percentage with black than white and using that opening (I use Ruy Lopez white)

    Is it good?

    its not that good compared to other defenses but openings are a matter of taste

    and my other ?s

    I use it well. It gets me a good indirect attack, usually on whites queen side, and it gives my king very decent position.

    EDITING: CAN SOMEONE POST THE FEN OF THIS OPENING???White:
    1. Pawn to d4 2. Pawn to e4. 3. Anything (say, knight to f3)

    Black:
    1. Pawn to g6. 2. Pawn to d6. 3. bishop to g7.

    How do you put in the space: rnbqk space nr (bishop is gone)
    I can see you are stuggling with FENs and to save cloggin up the other thread I thought I would post in here instead.

    you asked how to put in a space? - you use a number (number should equal the number of blank squares you wish to display)

    ie:

    rnbqkbnr/pppppppp/8/8/4P3/8/PPPP1PPP/RNBQKBNR


    rnbqkbnr = Rook, knight, bishop, queen, king, bishop, knight, rook
    as you can see the knights are denoted by an 'n' rather than a 'k' (this is used for the king)

    the second line being the pawns:

    pppppppp = eight pawns in a row

    lines three and four are:

    8 = eight blank squares

    line five is

    4P3 = four blank quares then a pawn and then three blank squares

    line six is empty again:

    8

    line seven is:

    PPPP1PPP = four pawns, one blank square followed by three pawns

    line eight (bottom line of the board) is

    RNBQKBNR = Rook, knight, bishop, queen, king, bishop, knight, rook

    Use lower case letters for black and UPPER case letters for white[/b]

    you seem to want to display the following position:

    White: 1) Pawn to D4, 2) Pawn to E4 3) Knight to f3
    Black: 1) Pawn to g6, 2) Pawn to d6 3) bishop to g7

    this would be:

    rnbqk1nr/ppp1ppbp/3p2p1/8/3PP3/5N2/PPP2PPP/RNBQKB1R

    I Got it! Look in the thread that says "Fen update."

    I have no need for this thread now. Thanks for the FEN help.
    Now the question....
