The Budapest Gambit really takes the Indian out of d4, if that's what you like.
more like Budapest Defense, because thats what black does the whole game if white doesnt fall for silly traps.
Here are a couple books that look very interesting to me, especially the one based on QGA. I've never won a game accepting it.
This is interesting in that the author espouses 1. ...d6 for anything white does?!
old benoli is quite effective
I like the Phenelomorphin Defense.
If you wanna reccomend some opening 'no one' knows pls. show some moves after which black is winning.
How can I show moves when no one knows this opening?
The key words in the OP are "not a very postional player". Indian Defenses are a terrible recomendation.
Try the Budapest Gambit. (1.d4 Nf6 2.c4 e5)
