I think if you want to play outside the book you should like to know it.
I like Nf3 better then Nc3 simply becuse Nf3 stops e5 there as Nc3 d5 seems to give white a hard time proving an advantage.
It depends what you are going for. Nf3 will likely stay in book for a while and Nc3 will often get out of book quickly. Also they are different structures and themes, etc.
If you are going to start with a Knight i think Nf3 is better.What about you guys?
this is simply cool....
Cheap open not because the queen is not trap
I don't do Nc3 anymore. I do d4.
I always do Nc3.
To all the people making puzzles, these puzzles are stupid. Nobody plays g6 in the four knights. Nobody players h5 on e4.
If 1.Nc3, f5 then white has e4 with a reversed Fromm and a move in hand. That can't be too bad.
How about the dutch variation 1.Nf3 f5?
