Does this work cause I may actually try play this
It's not a horrible move. The problem is that the bishop doesn't do anything on b2 other than stare at the d4 pawn all day long. White can end up with isolated pawns or hanging pawns which are bad for White because of the passive bishop.
White can always take on d5 later but that doesn't do much for him either.
If you wana fianchetto, fianchetto on the other side :D
It maybe could transp
Or somthing like that?
Maybe but the easiest way is just to play e6, d5 and c5. In the diagram Black is probably going to play e5 sooner or later and maybe the bishop can do something then.
White would be throwing away any chance of a tangible opening advantage because at this point b3 doesn't DO anything positive. It does nothing for the center, it develops no piece, it makes no threat. As AnthonyCG pointed out @ #2, the Bb2 would be passively placed.
Playable? Sure. But White should be pushing for more than an even game with chances for both sides. And Black can get equality at least by playing 4 ...Bb4+.
At the end of the 1st diagram...black plays b-b4 and white obviously isn't losing. But, it seems to me black is already equal. If b-d2 then black has many ideas like b-e7, a5(arguing that a2 is a weakness) or bxd2,dxc, q-e7, 0-0 ,nbd7, c5 and white won't seem to have enough activity to compensate for the weak pawns
Well this is the colle-zukertort
4...Bb4+ 5.Bd2 Be7 looks good enough for fast equality, but I'd rather play 4...c5, when in the Tarrasch formations about to be ancountered b2-b3 looks totally silly.
I am guessing your last post indicates you think nbd2 will transpose...But, if nbd2 then b-c3 is slightly annoying especially since the d pawn is hanging
It doesn't look too silly, and in fact after Nc3, dxc5, and Na5 has been played quite a few times. Would you suggest Black deviate from what I've given?
What is the point of 6 ...Be7 anyway? Just 6 ...cxd4 7 Nxd4 Bb4+ 8 Bd2 Bc5 and Black is very comfortably placed while White is quite awkward.
Precisely. Factly, white's best may be 6...cd4 7.Bg2 (instead of taking on d4) but this ain't plainsailing too, after 7...Qa5+ 8.Bd2 Qb6.
