    thanks, I did realise it was a terrible opening, but it is not true that the darksquare bishop is blocked, as you could fianchetto it.

    Not sure what Iwould do as black. ..d5!? straight away is interesting. ...Nc6 is solid and can't be bad.

    Could have been 1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Bd3 e5 (or an alternate move order). White to move.

    blasterdragon that actually leads to a pretty good position in that sequence, maybe I might try it every now and again (eg every 250th game or something, especially against a lower rated opponent

    Apperently this is actually a line of the Ponzani that ussually occures after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. c3 Nf6 4. Bd3

    I've seen that before.  I think it's called the I've-played-less-than-10-games-in-my-life opening.
