Is a very bad opening that is why is not on the GE.
Well apparently is does occur in the other database, is from the Petroff's defence C42.
thanks, I did realise it was a terrible opening, but it is not true that the darksquare bishop is blocked, as you could fianchetto it.
Let's call it Petroff Defence, drunken bishop variation.
Not sure what Iwould do as black. ..d5!? straight away is interesting. ...Nc6 is solid and can't be bad.
Why it have White to move? In first post.
how could it be white to move? white has moved thrice while black has only moved twice
Ok. Let's give black a rubbish move like ...a6.
Now it's white to move
Could have been 1. e4 e6 2. Nf3 Nf6 3. Bd3 e5 (or an alternate move order). White to move.
well if it was whites move i would either O-O or b3
well this opening has a weird plan:
blasterdragon that actually leads to a pretty good position in that sequence, maybe I might try it every now and again (eg every 250th game or something, especially against a lower rated opponent
Apperently this is actually a line of the Ponzani that ussually occures after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. c3 Nf6 4. Bd3
has no name so name it yourself
I've seen that before. I think it's called the I've-played-less-than-10-games-in-my-life opening.
lol @wafflemaster, thanks @chessmaster102, we've established that already, and we decided to call it "Pettroff Defence: Drunken Bishop Variation"
its a mutation of the copec system used against the sicilian which goes like this:
ok, thats interesting.
