id like to play somebody in there 2000 - 2200's just to see if an excellent player can make me up my play and give them some kind challenge,would be interesting. Anybody want to give me a game with that rating and tell me my weaknesses later?
Apart from opening his back line up in that corner don't see what all the fuss is about ,but that's probably why in not a Grand Master!
suppose at least it's uncomfortable theory wise for white, wouldn't be seen much. Ne4 seems rather premature in that vulture
Stefan Buecker suggested "the Hawk" some twenty five years ago. His main anti-d4 weapon was "the Vulture" (1.d4 c5 2.d5 Nf6 3.c4 Ne4).
Both not very sound, but certainly not belonging to his most bizarre opening ideas, either...
dxc5 is trading a center pawn for a flank pawn, not like it's a blunder but it's against basic opening principles.
c4 restricts Whites light sq bishop, after black plays b5. I think play would continue just like Queen's gambit accepted/Sicilian Dragon type.
why not 2. d x c5?
To prevent c2-c4 from white in next move. Kinda intresting ...
i don't get it what's the point of c4?
