The English Defense is amazing. Extreme flexibility, not widely known, and objectively sound.

Doesn't it transpose into the owens, which isnt as sound? (not completely busted tho obviously)

I really like the QGA. In my opinion d5 move orders are easier to play against d4 sidelines than Nf6.

Accepting the pawn immediately unbalances the game and puts pressure on White to regain it. It gives black time to get organized and if White isn't timely in regaining the pawn then it truly becomes a gambit.

I was allways curious what QGA players play against the english?

Does anyone play the Modern benoni or Benko gambit anymore?? Or is it just me lol
