    Looks like the London System to me, except for the Nc3 - knight seems a bit misplaced there blocking the c-pawn and not doing anything at all. Negi solved the problem for him though by exchanging it for one of his bishops.

    Nc3 is playable. Like Nc6 in Tschigorin defence

    Korch - why don't you like d4. I've been playing that for a while with great success, but over the last week or so, haven't been getting the results I'm looking for.

    Care to share?

    The first three moves start the Grunfeld Defense.



    1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 g6 3.Nc3 d5

    Just the example I was thinking of

    You are wrong - in that game was 1. d4 Nf6 2. Nf3 g6 3. Nc3 d5 with the position below:

    Why do you think that I dont like d4 ?

    I`m playing 1.d4 sometimes. For example:
    Game 3924015
    Game 3716954
    Game 3955816
    Game 3716953
    Game 3924138
    Game 3686193
    Game 3684100

    I think the Exchange variation is the best way to counter the Queen's Gambit. Its a little off topic but we're talking about openings. Does anyone else share this view? I personally think it's the main way for white to retain an advantage and winning chances against the drawish opening.

    1 d4 Nf6 2 Nf3 g6 3 Bf4 Bg7 4 Nc3 is called the Barry Attack. It is recommend by IM Gary Lane in his "Ideas Behind the Modern Chess Openings."

    I agree that Exchange variation is one of the best options against Queens gambit declined.

    I like to attack with the QGD and castle queenside. Those lines don't feel very drawish at all.
