Looks like something Naka would play bullet with.
This looks really cool, I'm gonna look into this!
IM Alex Wohl used to play 1..Na6 and 2..c6 at master level. He was called either a genius or a lunatic
Hmm, space, development, and can even sac a pawn back, white's the one having fun here right? Other than f4 and h5 looking odd, since they're there, I'm looking at 10.f5 or just 10.Be3. 10...Nb4 had a threat, nice, I wonder if it's black's last threat for the next 15 moves
Sorry to say that only a fool would think Black has any sort of compensation after 9.Nb3, which even a child would easily find.
Of course at bullet the basic recipe is making short moves with pieces close to each other, so this "opening" could make some sense.
No offense Daniel I don't like this and won't play it, except for maybe in bullet :-)
(But I'm probably not good enough to judge openings, not an expert yet :)
