    Playin' d white, is the next move going to be B-f2 ??!

    Then white castles to g1........!! Is that going to be a good defense, I doubt about it !!

    I like the knight move, but not the pawn.

    Moving the knight first gives you a chance to see what your opponent will do, before committing your pawns.

    I have been using this a lot lately.

    p.s. I tried to run the spell check and it didn't work.

    I personally like KIA, it protects the White's king pretty good, never make the move e4 if it will be fixed in that position, the light square bishop will be a bad piece. In the position after White castled, I prefer that you immediately fight in the center. In any case, the king is well protected, however, if your opponent starts a kingside attack, secure your position ASAP.

    I am a bit new to this opening, but I understand the bottom strategy.

    First time trying this opening | Chess.com | 23 Oct 2014 | 0-1
    on this first game i saw 19.cxd5 could've been 19.Kb2, blocking the escape route for computer hard loosing two pawns but getting one bishop advantage.
    any other perspectives on that?

    HaveAnotherGame, I play against Shredder and it uses this d5 move a lot.

    It's the Scandinavian Defense. Just put "chess e4 d5 Wiki" and you'll see.

    I do 2. e4xd5 and then comes the black Queen on her own. She can create a lot of problems, but not with d5. If she moves too much, she looses time. Then comes a bishop and it may sacrifice to open my defense, etc.

    I get it. All 4 bishops are on the same colors.

    I'm getting back into chess after getting decent, about 750, and I'm trying to learn more strategy. I tried this opening and I want advice on the game.

    Thank you.

    Thanks for telling this opening-attack is good for beginners. I will give it a good try and study it with care. I started to study THE LONDON SYSTEM, which has some similarities, but this one is more compacted, with more pieces placed at strategic points,more able to defend, it seems.

    You're right. This is a nice opening. But, I just want to know has anyone had problems with d5?

    Nice opening moves, specially for beginners as it solves the centre complicacy as well.

    King's Indian Attack vs d5. Has anyone ever had trouble with playing the King's Indian Attack with this move? It seems initially, there is focus on the e4 square. But the counter center pawn or d5, seems to change the Opening System enough to keep it from being a familiar position.
