See a few posts ago when one of many move order that avoids the exchange variation was posted. I play d5 e6 c6 and then could get into this defense with Nf6 etc.
A move that white can play if he doesnt like the cs opening is A3. This blocks the bishop and eliminates all possibilities of the cs. Does waste a tempo though.
a3 is not very effective if you're playing it where I think you're playing it...
I'm not playing it there
