How to Crush 1...e5 (against 1. d4)

Sep 1, 2014, 8:13 AM 1

There is a certain type of player who wants to play 1.d4 e5? against you, pretty much because he is hoping for 2.dxe5 Nc6 3.Nf3 Qe7 4.Bf4 Qb4+ and then he picks up the B on f4 if you forget it's there, and thinks he's winning. Here is just one of many ways to complete destroy this ridiculous opening (if it even deserves to be called an opening). Remember, I played this in a bullet game (2 1), so I wasn't entirely accurate and even made a mistake or two, but nevertheless managed to win the game easily. Let this be a warning to those fools who play this way with Black, and a lesson to you 1.d4! players on how to refute it.
