    Regarding that sequence above, is it better to play 3...d5 first and then play c5 at a more favorable time?

    This leads probably to Benoni after d5 exd5 cxd5 d6 e4 g6...etc

    I use the dutch defense againsy d4

    1.d4 f5 I use the stonewall dutch

    I find Grunfeld to be very useful, Kings indian is a very agressive reply i also use, you can also transpose into modern defense with g6, e4. Also benoni defense with benko gambit if you choose. Dutch defense lenigrad, although i dont love it because of the exposure to your king through the f7 diagonal.

    Sorry to restart an old thread but I really need an aggressive opening against the Queen's Pawn. Is there something like the Apocalpyse Attack from Caro-Kann?

  • #136

    I need a strong opening that will maximize my chances for a win. Not a draw. (Mostly openings that are called [Name] Attack)
