    I thought it was called touchdown defense. Not sure though

    Chessisvanity why this Crabfettish?
    I guess you've got dozens of crabs as pets. In half of your posts you mention the great "THE CRAB!!".

    Maybe that means if you use the cornstalk defense, you're soon to be shucked.

    Duh. It should be pretty apparent that after two moves, you've actually made your position way worse, while donating two tempi to you opponent. It's not even bad. It's frickin terrible.

    there is no such thing as a bad opening when you play guys under 1600.....above 1600 then its time to get serious....and not waste tempo's and create bad positions......clearly i know and knew that the "CRAB!!" isn't that great.....but fun!
