    I agree with nanowarrior. That is one of the reasons I play it.

    A game may quickly transpose into a "standard" line or into new territory - which is another reason I like it; the ability to get out of book fast.

    I find this opening to be unique, it doesnt give away any early intentions.

    Soon, we will celebrate our 2015th game of this opening.

    I personally find this opening a total failure for White. Besides fooling around whit that knight while Black esthablishes a strong pawn center structure, what does White achieve in the short term? How long does it take ( if it does ) for White to eventually drag out an advantage from this opening? What kind of middlegame can White achieve? It seems to me that in really few words...if White was planning to loose the initiative and the advantage to move as first, well....then this is the right opening to choose.

    Playing the Dutch against it allows for 2.e4. Similar to a From's gambit with a move in hand - and without the gambit. I like that for white.

    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?
