    My first response ... "What? what is that pond doing way in the corner? this is how they want us to start?"   Not until I  backed up the pieces I figured out how it got that way. The part that is crazy is how white somehow wins the majority of time ... white should get slaughtered everytime, but I'll try it ... Laughing

    The Cunningham Defense with 4...Nf6 rather than 4...Bh4+ is a fine defense against the KG that I've been playing for 30 years.

    What will be if play Khe1-f1 instead of g2-g3


    That's the main line of the Cunningham for white and perfectly okay, White's king is not too vulnerable on f1 and he leads in development.

    idon't feel comfortable with this opening. Especially the act of purposefully opening your kingside to possible tactical attack.  Though I may use this opening only in friendly games.

    There is anyreasonable tactical trap or advandage that justify this foolish?
