okay i have a couple new ideas
1. 1.d4, 2.Nf3 just like Kirk. i think it's not a half bad idea. i may even play 2.c4 against 1.d4 d5 we'll have to see. the idea is to play 2.Nf3 against 1. ...Nf6. i need to get comfortable in the queen's gambit declined just like i am in the ruy lopez as white.
2. 1.d4 Nf6 2.Nf3 c5!? as Black. i think it could work. 3.e3 cxd4 4.exd4 d5 is a CK Exchange. 3.d5 b5! is the original benko gambit. 3.c4 e6 aims for either a benoni or a tarrasch defense depending. again i'm going far too deep here, but i think this would be playable enough, except for the benoni things. we'll have to see.
the big deal here is the return to 1.d4
what against the dutch i wonder? i could always just develop. i'll ponder.
morozevich is in last place at Corus Wijk Aan Zee. looks good on him...he's a jerk ass
