this is also known as "Misclick Opening"
I used to play this opening when I first started playing chess in tournaments when I was in 9th grade. I follow up with 2. d4 no matter what and it can even transpose into a Queen's Gambit declined. 1. e3?? d52. d4 e6 3. c4 ...and look where we are.Even if they don't cooperate with 1...d5.1. e3? e5!2. d4 exd43. exd4 Nf6(?)4. c4 and we're still in Queen's Gambit territory, only you've got an open E file.Think of e3 as a type of Ponziani structure where you're going for a pawn on D4 against all odds. It's really not THAT bad. It's got friends, to say the least.
why is this a good opening?
e6? LOVE it!! e3? hate it!!
I'm no pro, but I don't usually open like this. Too many limitations.
i've used this opening a few times. when i put those games in the computer for an analysis it says that it gives me a losing position for about 5 moves and then i always manage to quickly develop my pieces and castle giving me a relatively equal if not winning position. Also, If I play this opening and blacks response is to eventually castle king's side then i end up winning by trapping their king in the corner.
The black win rate says it all!
love this opening, white or black.
Jaylooker, I cant tell if your being sarcastic, or....Or just playing bad....No offense....
hey guys theres a way where you can use the same trick as the one below my comments puzzle if you use the queens gambit accepted and do stuff you can mate them kinda how the one below me does
Saw this three times in a row today in live chess! Didn't know what to do so started playing KID against it? Insane? I went 2-0 with KID against it.
Does it make sense for black to simply play as though white has opened Queen's Side choosing one's preferred defence? It doesn't seem worth it to actually study this opening in itself.
very hard puzzle -_-
Revised as game was truly a bad example: This opening will probably lead to white building up dynamic potential and prepares f4, d4, or Nc3 as possibly the next move.
not bad move
When an opponent plays this opening in live chess I always assume it was a mouse slip...
