Why not this?

    This is a game I played earlier today.  I was playing black.  I noticed that I played the opening differently than I ever had before, so I decided to use the game explorer to follow how many times the first few moves had been played.  My fourth move had apparently never been played. I'm wondering if there is something wrong with it?

    Why would black play d6 here?  He is under no obligation to play d6.

    I know most people would play d5, but I wanted to put immediate pressure on that pawn to see what he would do.  I hate it when people rush that pawn, and I wanted to experiment with a different way to set up against it.  I just want to know if there is something wrong with using the queen to maintain protection of her pawn, and to add protection to the knight.  I figured most people would use the bishop, but my bishop is already developed, so why not get the queen out there in a decent position, albeit a little earlier than I'd normally play her?

    because normally you are not supposed to develop the queen so early in the opening

    Not familiar with the 2.e5 lines, but in most Sicilians you don't know where your queen will be best until some more moves have been played (e.g. maybe on b6 or a5).

    In this game I don't see anything wrong with 4...Qc7. The d5 square seems a bit weak, but it may not matter. I suspect people don't play it because it unnecessarily limits your options. Or in other words, at the sub-master level it makes no difference :p

    Yeah, I saw the weak d5, and it concerned me, but I figured he had a set play in mind following my 2...d6.  So I decided to make him lose a tempo to guard it his pawn with the assumption that his bishop would attack that knight.  The eventual exchange turned out bad for me due to a miscalculation, but he eventually resigned.

    Yeah, although I played poorly, he was definitely sub-master lol.  No way should I have caught up to him in this one.

    I wouldn't even think about openings, you need to concentrate entirely on tactics until you are at least 1400.

    There isn't anything wrong about 4...Qc7.It has never been played probably because the 2.e5 line games are already very few and I found only one with the first 4 moves in the Big Database.And for musterious reasons it ends whith white winning on move 8!!!

    What did Black see and resigned?Maybe it was just a typo.The game has been registered in the database as white's win but probably 2 opponents agreed a draw(it explains the rather crazy line also).
