Move A Day - #2 B

1. e4 c5 2. Nf3 d6


Correct Response(s) - Many, d4 being prefered by many.


 Black follows what may very well be the single most played opening in the history of modern chess.  The idea behind the move is simple; support the 'c' pawn, fight for the center, and prepare to develop agressively.  


 Should the mainline continue to be followed, we well almost certainly end up in a very agressive and tactical position.


Unfortunately for us spectators, we may be stuck in the 'book' for some time to come, the game should be very fun though!
