I bet you`re very much relieved after that last blog on pawn structure.WinkThe Sargossa opening is played by 1.c3:







This is an uncommon and "bizzare opening". I somehow won with that same opening. Here are the strengths and weaknesses of the Sargossa opening:

strength- can set up a pawn chain on the a1-h8 diagonal(it starts at b2)

weaknesses- limits the squares for the QB to fianchetto and the QN can`t go its best developing square-c3

Thx for viewing!
