    Aahhahaahaha! I have always played this opening when going against my little brother and friends whenever they tried the 2.Nc3...

    None of us had any opening knowledge, so we didn't know about things like the Queen's Indian, King's, and Nimzo-.

    From other comments, it seems as though this move has not been noticed much!

    It certainly makes kings Indian players think for themselves

    Ooh! I like this - why did it never occur to me?! :D

    If a move is a dumb opening, why do it and why publicize it - that is what I am saying.

    If I didn't already play king pawn I may use this for gambit (queens gambit is not my taste)

    Just saw this for the first time recently, playing as black.  Probably the ugliest game I've ever won.  Black has the choice of laying his own plans or contesting white's control of e4.  If you're used to positional play with traditional pawn structures, I don't think this opening is for you, since it generally seems to result in a wide open game.

    How do people not get the point of this opening? White couldn't play e4 before and f3 goes toward achieving this. Does that make it good? Well, that's another story.

    Oh, and some people use 2. f3 to transpose to the Blackmar Diemer gambit, but those people are crazy.

    I look at this (and being pretty much a beginner) think to myself - what kind of dumb opening is this?  I don't get it.

    Preparing to play e2-e4, even as a gambit. The game will likely transpose to the Blackmar Diemer Gambit.

    It does seem pretty weak!

    I think White wants more support for e4 but doesn't want to commit a knight with Nc3. Probably White's way of getting away with e4 after the square is "taken."

    How is this an attack?? f3 does nothing except give the king another move... helpful if attacked, but when you moved the bishop it did the same thing. Is this opening a bit pointless?

    could transpose into a saemash?

    I've played this before, but it's kind of dubious.
