    I chose to specialise in this opening as a beginner because, once you play it, your opponent has no choice but to play an "English" game.

    Whereas if you play e4 or d4 he has a lot of responses available to him that you may not have learned.

    Also, it does throw your opponent off balance a little.

    I have now been playing it for years but I still usually have a little moment of confused panic when someone plays it on me!

    I use the English a lot online I have the reverse sicilian down pat it's confusing some of the main lines in the English are weird variations in the sicilian and vice versa. This opening can transpose into many different Indian systems and early on into a queens gambit

    In the "Game of the Century" (for those who know) , Byrne used the English Opening transposed into the Grunfeld Defense against Fischer. Unfortunately, he lost the game.

    The english opening is not a very good for beginners. You need to be versitaille because there are many different replies that go into completely different positions. However if youre up to it then why not? You will be a bit more difficult to defeat once you understand all the positions that can arise. Good luck!

    I just can't decide wether I find this one good or bad. Maybe I will try it for some time, just to make sure. Does anyone know any good variations for this?

    no it could go into the Botvinik English, Symetrical English or even the Polish!

    Does this always transition into the Queen's Gambit?
