I made this up myself and use it all the time! Idea is to trade a bishop that would normally be blocked off for a more active piece.Step 2 is to get ready for a c pawn push but its not a gambit because the bishop is protecting it.It has a nice postion and white is very flexible in what he wants to do. Only problem is the attack comes a little slow and black can organize a defense. What do you think?
It is really interesting line.
What about blocking check with bishop? Then you will have to take or else you lose a minor piece. That will allow black to develop and take your bishop.
i play black
whats making the big pawns?
For a while I tried to make an opening system for white with 1. Nf3 2. Nc3.
