    After D4 Nf6, Bg5 g6 is already a bad move! Many Players, who normaly play the Kingsindian-Defence, try this and they get bad positions. After g6 white should play Bxf6 exf6, C4(!) Bg7, Nc3 O-0, g3 f5, e3 d6, Bg2 Nbd7, Ne2 Nf6, 0-0 Re8 and now play on the queenside with b4 and Qb3. Black cant Do very much in this position

    I like this opening.And I'm thingking that this opening si not following the rule in chess opening to develope knights before bishop.But this opening depends to a player for his/her strategy.

    Castling on the Queen side is much better plan if the rook had an open file on Rg8.:)

    I dont mind losing Knight here. I will concentrate on my development, if Bxf3, we can take bishop by gxf3. So i will get open rank for k-rook.

    I also believe exf6 has been recorded as " solid response" to tat capture.

      I argue against Bxf6..gxf6, rg8, o-o-o is, think bronstein larsen variation or knight variant in the classical caro.

    i use this opening. Although i find that im usually developiing into a "tarrasch" like set-up only the q-bishop is played. i have to add that black really hasnt competed with me for initiative or space with c5. anyone wanna play through it? And as always comments are welcome.

    I only play this opening with the black pieces. The idea behind 2.Bg5 is perhaps best shown after 2...e6 3.e4, where white quickly takes hold of the center and starts to gain an advantage in space. In general, this can be a very dangerous opening in the right hands. I like here 2...Ne4 because it seems to be the most active option. After 3.Bf4, black has several options, perhaps the most active is c7-c5 to fight for the center and use the queen to disturb white's queenside pawn structure.

    Another option is the harmless looking 3...d7-d6, planning e7-e5. For example after 4.f3 Nf6 5.e4 Nbd7, black is ready for e7-e5 while white is probably not ready for 6.e5. Still, I think that I prefer 3...c5 because it seems more active. White is probably ready to sacrifice the b2-pawn for activity, but black does not need to go for pawn grabbing and can focus on developing the kingside with e7-e6, Bf8-e7 and 0-0.

    The Trompowsky attack is a good opening for those who don't want to or do not have time to study lots of opening theory.  Like the Colle System, it's easy to learn and its ideas are easy to understand.

    This opening should not transpose into the torre attack. The main idea is to trade off the bishop for the pawn and hence give the black king a weaker position.

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This diagram shows a gambit in the Tromp. , in this gambit white gives black a pawn in exchange for a tempo advantage.

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    This diagram depicts the same position, just instead of allowing black the pawn, white choses to defend it and try for a long-term advantage.

     

    My point is that the Trompowsky can end up in any position you want, yet normally, the players push for an early lead for example:
