A mystery with d4 e6

Jun 8, 2012, 7:17 PM 1

There have been 5 games I`ve played with d4 e6(1 win,1 draw,and 3 losses)but it made me wonder, why would someone play that?One thing is that this is the Horwitz Defense which can transpose into the French Defense,Queen`s Indian Defense, and Nimzo-Indian Defense.Second,it says white has a better chance at winning than drawing or losing.One thing is left for me, why not play a modern opening like the Sicilian Defense and not Petrov`s Defense?
