For black, the most straightforward and positional approach seems to be 2. ..d5 3. exd5 Qxd5 with the idea of meeting d4 with a well-timed cxd4, after which white will be left with an isolated queen pawn, but with more active pieces in exchange.
usually black can continue with d6,d4,nf6,dxc5 followed by nc6,,,its not that much tough 4 black,,black can put up a fight...

yeah thats nice opening for white,its usefull thanks..
This is v bad for the Balck , now the white centre , good position can be made by white bisop of the white player , the black bisop mostly will be close .
its like playing the game of your life against the computer and when standing with a bishop more u just throw evrything u achieved earlier in the game right in the disposal
this is how i interpretated white in this game...
my comment refers to the 1265 vs comp at 2000 below here, not the opening itself must know!
Nf6 for black seems to mess up white pretty badly because now the knight cannot go to c3 to defend
Great lesson for me
The idea is to move next to 3.d4, and if 3...cxd then 4.cxd leaves white with two central pawns.
Hmmmm... I don't get it. Why prevent the Queenside knight from moving to c3?
very good opening for white....and wht hv attaking chances
