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!
