I vote d4.
d5 is an interesting reply, i didnt see that.
As I said in the line I gave, I feel that black's position is solid, and he will undermine our center soon
I play the Tarrasch Variation against the French and the main line against d4 is a very similar position to what you get with that... I think white is fine here.
As for your line white could play 5. Bd3 instead of 5. e5.
yeah this will wind up transposing into a French
looks like we might get a perfect vote for d4!
hi i'm new to this. this will be fun, it seems.
(I have the state chess tourney tomorrow!!)
anyways, d4 is my choice
good luck in your tourney!
I am very strecthed today, sorry guys. HOUDINI PLAYED D5 I WILL UPDATE EVERYTHING LATER VOTING NOW OPEN
agree with e5
yeah no, Nd2 leads to a tarrach wich will come anyway, this has the added benifit of preventing the capture without wasting tempo, and allowing us to gain a tempo if Houdini plays Nf6
I don't feel like going into the French Advance...
sorry everyone, Ive been really stretched today. I finnaly updated the post, here is a diagram witht hte current position. leading vote is e5
