Englund Gambit Complex

    I play the Englund as one of my main responses against 1.d4...in every kind of chess...blitz, OTB and correspondence...

    For sure, if i would only play the same variation in every game, it would be easy to figure out the critical responses.

    Therefore i play different variations.

    2...d6 (the Blackburne-Hartlaub), 2...f6 or 2...Nc6 and then 3...f6 (The Soller or Felbecker), sometimes even the main line with 2...Nc6 and 3.Qe7, although its way too passive in my opinion.

    I also play the Albin and the Baltic Defence, so that i have a wide range of responses against 1.d4 and iam not too predictable for my opponent.

    Of course its a risk to play unsound openings, sometimes it pays off, because your unwary opponent walks the wrong path (and this also happens to good players), sometimes ill get crushed.

    Each players has an individual style and there is no dogma that allows to play only high fashioned openings.

    I dont have to earn my money with chess and i dont want to achieve a GM title, so what...

    Certainly makes you a dangerous opponent DF.

    Even a warned player would have difficulties properly preparing against all these lines ! Smile
