    This is a continuation of Thread 101730.

    After 1.e4 c5 2.Nf3 d6, PAWN RIOT has just sent me 3.d4.

    This is the position with black to move.



    Although, I like the voting format, I say we just play cxd4 (which is played about 90% of the time) and move on. Other moves (like 3. ...Nf6) have been played but are very rare.

    I'll do it like this.

    All those agreed to just playing 3. ... cxd4 type " AGREED".
    All those against skipping the vote type "VOTE".

    ( A vote to decide to vote. LOL)

    I'll start it off.

    AGREED

    VOTE. Nf6 is the fun move. Bg4 has some flavour too.

    I don't even think that Jesus would be able to perform a miracle and give us something from this abominable opening, exchanging pawns seems the most objectively best choice, exchanging a wing pawn for a central pawn, although we relinquish some control over d4 and do not develop anything, although i suppose the c file could be utilized for some type of attack later. cxd4 for me, agreed.

    Not counting myself, I have 8 Agreeds (cxd4).
    Two more agreeds and I will go with it.
