THe Blumenfeld Gambit is interesting.
I like the Benoni. Throws the game off balance right away and that e-file and strong g7 Bishop are great tactical tools. I also like the Tarrasch.
I played many times d5 and then slav, and several times declined. I hate closed games, and i am much more comfortable with indian defense. however, i don't play the nimzo-indian (especially the main line) as black almost never. I preafer playing g6 and then strike in the center with grunfeld, or some type of benoni, and black's attack potential and devlepment becomes much greater.
please leave comments below :)
i had a game with this defense im not sure if its that great but its a good suprise weapon
beautiful game!thanks for posting it!
your welcome i really had a lot of fun playing that game
why have you listed the variation with nc3 as bad because of nxd5? nxd5 is very bad there. and for the record that's the mexican defence and it's perfectly decent as an opening, can easily transpose into most d4 defences
i also like playing the blumenfeld gambit
isnt that the benko gambit?
dutch, nimzo, KID
the benko is the brother to the blumenfeld and it goes
