white has a good space advantage with this opening but i playable by black of course. the higher up you go the more players will know how to take advantage of that space. if your a positional player take on something like the ruy lopez. if you like your space take the sicilian.
I like this opening.Especially line 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 d63.d4 Nf6 4.Nc4 Nbd7 on which I`m going with different move order 1.e4d6 2.d4 Nf6 3.Nc3 e5 and the bestfor white s to play 4.Nc3 and after 4...Nbd7 position is the same.
But. These opening is NOT for beginners and for players who misunderstand and/or dislike positional play.
