Hippo Fanatic

The Hippopotamus Defence is a name for various irregular chess opening systems in which Black moves a number of his pawns to the third rank, often developing his pieces to the second rank, and does not move any of his pawns to the fourth rank in the opening.

I currently am using the hippopotamus defense which is very flexible and solid type of opening since I am a positional player.

In this game I won as white with hippo. Many players seems to think that it is not a good opening at all but many Gm's and Im's are using it.
