I'm gonna use this for the 23rd chess.com tournament
1.a3 is like this opening...
Which is better? this or the Daeth Opening?
Hmmm... is there some way to play them against each other?
I like 1.a3 too sometimes, especially if I have too many white games since 1.c3,c5 or 1.c3,d5 and 1...e5 2.c4 isn't forced. That leaves 1.a3 usually transposing into many Sicilians up a tempo, but black's setup is good because it's designed to slowly phase out white's initiative and take it himself. White on the first move already has the initiative.
1.Nf3 2.b3 3.Bb2 4.e3 is a great system usually but sometimes black can disrupt this system.
1.e4,f5? is the herpaderp gambit, for those times you must lose.

Why so many people tossing around new names for the Fred?
Playing an even worse move than standard Fred theory on move two doesn't make it some other opening altogether. It just makes it an even worse Fred.
My opening is not the Fred, The Fred/Phred has different lines. It's like saying that the French is the same as Najdorf or something
Any masters or grandmasters want to play as black with this openig and tell us what they think...
Of course this opening is just losing, but presumably the lesser evil if you wanted to play it in very fast time controls would be 2...Nf6 and 3...d5, where black may only be a pawn down for nothing against routine play. A couple of 2300s have even tried to play this way in opens, though with deservedly bad results.
I win a lot in bullet with this...
Anyone want to try this OTB?
OTB? No. In a live blitz game? If I'm feeling adventurous that day :)
