    I love beating people with this opening,  its so simple:  close up the kingside,  trade the queens,  and win their c4 pawn and the game.

    Why not 0-0 instead of pushing the d-pawn (at 7th move)? If white take the c-pawn, it will let them with an horrendous pawn-ruined structure (a triplet on c-file). Sure, the bishop on c8 will be difficult to develop, but it's interesting enough to take a try...as soon as possible, I'll test it! Cool

    Anyway, it's plain that black is at ease with this opening....

    Ill explain it.

    1. d4 Nf6 (no explanation)

    2. c4 (to take control of the d5 square) e6 (dispute control of the d5 square)

    3. Nc3 (to gain more control over that square) Bb4 (to possibly trade with the knight to weaken white's hold on the square, also develops a piece in the process)

    4. e3 (to protect the d4 pawn, in case c5 is played) c5 (to try to trade the d4 pawn, which is part of the reason why the d5 square is wrestled over)

    5. Bd3 (defends the c4 pawn and takes an open diagonal) Nc6 (black now has more attackers against the d4 pawn than white has defenders)

    6. Nf6 (restores the balance on the d4 pawn) Bxc3+ (finally trades with the c3 knight and ruins white's pawn structure in the process)

    7. bxc3 (really the only move) d6 (now that the bishop is traded away, there is no piece defending the c5 pawn)

    White's position is now considerably cramped and black has a slightly higher chance of winning.
