    You play the symmetrical english? I transpose into that as white after 1.Nf3 ..c5 2.c4. I don't see many players actively choose this for black, not that it's unsound or anything, but avoiding a symmetrical position when you're black is a rule most people seem to stick too..

    a general system that the specialist will relish! isolated queens pawns galore if it transposes to the Keres system, for black, neeext 😛

    I don't want my pawn on d4, I want it on d6. If you're referring to your pawn as a target for me, who cares? I'm black, you're white. Onus is on you to win, and my position will be nice and solid.

    Try again dad 😉

    yes i was referring to my pawn on d4 which is usually a target for a kings Indian player,
    but in the English there is no pawn on d4 and them Kings Indian players get confused,
    ...d6, a pansy move, you will need to play either ...e5 or ...c5 eventually my son and
    just where will you put your dark squared bishop? 😛

    It can work good, if you are just looking for a draw.

    P.S. Of course, one can not keep the symmetrical position all the way through the game or else he is likely to end with a loss. 1-0

    P.S. Check out my most resent game against Kingshill GameId "9516242"
    It is the symmetrical 4 Knights System.
