24 ( +1 | -1 ) d4...I almost always play 1. ... Nf6 in answer to the Queens pawn opening... It really doesn't give away which defence you might choose (as it fits into many defensive lines)... And it more or less secures the e4 square...
34 ( +1 | -1 ) yah!I play d4 a lot and have had much succes, but playing against it i play the grunfield:[ [
1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 3. Nc3 d5 4. cxd5 Nxd5 5. e4 Nxc3 6. bxc3 c5 7. Bc4 Bg7 8. Ne2 Nc6 9. Be3 O-O 10. O-O Bg4 11. f3 Na5 12. Bxf7+ Rxf7 13. fxg4 Rxf1+ 14. Kxf1 Qd6 15. e5 Qd5 16. Bf2 Rd8 17. Qc2 Qc4 18. Qb2 Rf8 19. Kg1 Qd3 20. Re1 Nc4 21. Qb1 Qxb1 22. Rxb1 * this is what karpov and kasparov play, of course there are many other ways to play but this is what is see the most and play
The best reply to 1.d4 is that is more comfortable to you.
1 ( +1 | -1 ) Budapest gambit(!!!!!!!!!!!) muahaha
17 ( +1 | -1 ) dutchAs a dutchman and because it gives very interesting positions ( compared with the dull Grunfeld), I conclude that the best reply is 1...f5, followed by the Leningrad system.
25 ( +1 | -1 ) VultureI am using with some success the Vulture, which forms a system from the moves 1.d4 c5 2.d5 Nf6 3.c4 Ne4 It is quite agressive and gives white quite some trouble in the early opening stage. It also has a big surprise value. Yours, Bernhard
9 ( +1 | -1 ) e6and you can go further into French, Nimzo-Indian or Queens-Indian (recommended by H.C. Opfermann)
48 ( +1 | -1 ) 1.d4 d5And of course, 90% of white players will play 2.c4 the queen's gambit. I declined the gambit for a long time and played 2...e6, but I am more comfortable accepting the gambit now with 2..dxc4. The nimzo-indian and queen's indian defenses are quite strong, but require a good deal of skill and experience to play properly. Unless you are a very experienced, high-rated player you will probably have more success with the symmetrical queen's pawn game .
0 ( +1 | -1 ) I have only one response to 1.d4;1...e5
15 ( +1 | -1 ) e5...?I will soon feel the brunt of your system, I'm afraid. Hope to learn from it. What are the typical replies, other than my dxe?
34 ( +1 | -1 ) The typical replyis dxe5. Other moves are inferior and transpose into drawn schemes: 2.d4 is the center game (I don't know the anglosaxon name); 2.e3 is the French exchange (if exd exd); 2.Nf3 is tricky: Black may exchage, for the French setup), or play ...e4; 2.d5 resembles typical Benoni setups; the best reply and the only attempt for White to gain an efge is the simple dx5.
