I have played and won several games when I didn't take on b2, but when I do take I run into too many problems. Has anyone found a "safe" way to deal with the blooming looming bishops and queen stranglehold?
Here is one of the main line, giving a safe game :
If u want to be greedy, the safer is this one :
5..Bb4+ is another very valid option to consider. its riskier, but its also fun and tactical for both sides, and if black survives the fire, he'll end with an advantage.
I have absolutely no difficulty myself with the playing of God Save the Queen in the presence of Her Majesty - besides,
the pawn on d5 or the pawn on d4, that is the question.
Every dogma has its day.
Idk what's so dubious about it. The same thematic d5 thrust in response to e5 is also implemented in this line. If white pushes e5, black will push d5.
after white c3 black play d5 and black better for human eyes
