    White could play Scandinavian defense with 2.d4.

    the rat defense is 1.d4 d6. This is reversed variation kind of!

    The stats for the continuations speak for themselves. Black wins more often than white, even in the most common continuation (c4)

    I don't see any advantages for white here.

    Not aggrassive for white

    d3 is quite a passive move for white.  I'm not being judgmental but I guess I would not be comfortable with this opening move for white.

    E4 is a good next move, to control the center....

    I agree, ugosdecks.

    I guess black grabbed the opportunity for control in the center here.

    I just joined. i don't know how to use this game explorer yet. I didn't know someone would be communicating with me as I moved around.I was trying to set the board up after 2 moves for white and 2 for black then get ideas from that position. Can that be done?  If I get a reply to this I hope it shows in my email otherwise I might not know anyone replied.

    Dont even understand how to use this.  Isnt your best opening the one that you personally feel comfortable with.  Doesnt your opening always change depending on the move of the other player?  The most important move I think is closing someone out.  Anyone could have an awesome opening by mimicking the other players move.  Ive stood head to toe with players rated much higher then me but once that first piece is taken and the board opens up Ive seen myself get crushed in three moves as well as Ive done a little crushing myself. Its when you start swapping pieces is when the true masters succeed.  Does anyone agree?
