    Why don't you post a fen of the starting position? And which side is to move. And while you are at it, how about a starting move order.

    Hey i know all the sexy lines for white and black in this opening. I've played literally 500 games in this opening! If you draw me in the first round you're toast, simple as that! That goes for the second and third rounds too sucka!! πŸ˜›

    It's just a rebranding of the Philidor defence.

    What a painful variation. Not my cup of tea. Therefore, I have entered it to get more experience with a position.

    The fen in the description is wrong...

    Should be 1. e4 d6 2. d4 Nf6 3. Nc3 Nbd7 4. Nf3 e5

    That is not FEN. FEN is a description of a position. Thats why this site can render a board from an FEN. What's wrong is the algebraic move notation.

    Yeh, it relies on people assuming it's a philidor/pirc. The strategy is defensive, black often defends for 20 or 30 moves, but it can turn nasty for white as black has some unusual resources! Don't under estimate it, i score really well with this opening, i never play anything else (well, hardly never anyway...)

    The games start with the board already set up in the opening position.
