    The stat chart to the right serves very little or no purpose.  Remember that transpositions are taken into account in many chess games, and once the openings transposes to another, it belongs in another category for rating and measurement.

    Most English players play the opening using 1.Nf3 and 1.c4, so 1... c5 is normal.  I find that after I play 1... c5, if they don't play the English, they are less good than those who continue along the English.

    *** Do not misinterpret***

    I say that, purely from a statistical perspective of my games as Black, when I faced White players who do not continue along normal English lines after 1.Nf3 c5, they have been easier opponents, than those who do play along English lines.  That has just been the history with me.

    Everyone's experience is different.

    It is very very odd to see a 1.e4 player end up in a Sicilian after 1.Nf3 c5 2.e4.  That has happened to me 2-4 times EVER.  I play Sicilian as Black.

    1.d4 is not possible for black as that would mean black would move his pawn three spaces

     

    @maxwell__

     

    it is far from unaffective in fact it is extremely effective white d5 whites reply is d4 focing black to play a symetrical d4-d5 game which black may not want for example i would rather play something like the KID or the Nimzo-indian

     

    @ScorpionPackAttack

    yes but so does anything thats not hyper-modern reply by black for example d5 d4 and white has forced black into playing closed game

     

    @Sun777

    thats just a stupid comment in no way is this opening only going to benefit white he may have a slight edge but that is in all openings

    definitley best reply d5 runs into d4 where white has tricked black into playing d4-d5 lines so it is a good way to force your opponet into a position

    Looks good at first, but the problem is 2.c4, when black is suddenly in the symmetrical English.

    Lots of trash talk on this opening. Just fyi Houdini 3 Pro came up with this as a best move after 24 hours of analysis. It abandoned 1...d4 after about a depth of 27.
