    it's a totally playable opening.....Im a huge fan of ....Nc6 (Nimzo defence) but this is a very nice opening as well...

    lately played it (online/ corresp.) and caught an 1800 player offguard with with his Queen f3 on the 6th move...

    Im not expecting to walking into Queen blunders all the time, but Im gonna try this opening more often...

    This opening is good if you want to give white the better position and the initiative out of the opening. ;)

    for opening the best way to find, more acurate move is with the opening report. use engine for opening is a bad idea. yes the engine are strong but opening report is the best way. some times some  nice move are choosen bye the engine. that were not considered.

    Lol@gduffy, just exclaiming some nonsense .. maybe if you had a rating of 2200 someone would actually take it seriously...

    I have found that this opening is quite effective.  I have played against this Owen Deffence many times and unless the opponent makes a major mistake you will have a fight on your hands.  Not as bad as a lot of people think and can be very effective at times.

    All I know is, in 15 games using Owen defense, I have a record of 13 wins, and 2 draws so far. No losses.  Even though most of those have been against players rated lower, those stats work for me.
