gibo If you want just one defence which can be used against any White opening, then you could try the Modern Defence as that is playable against any White plan.

Kind regards,

oops ! This was supposed to be on gibo's thread about defences for Black and not a new thread.

Sorry

Well, since it's a new thread would you mind giving the first few moves of the Modern Defence, as I don't have any references at hand right now? Say white is playing a normal 1 e4 2 Nf3 sort of opening.

Modern Defence 1.e4 g6 2.Nf3 Bg7 3.d4 d6 4.Nc3 Nf6

Black aims to support the e5 square with the castled rook on e8, a Knight on d7, Bishop on g7 and the d6 pawn prior to making the pawn push to e5.

Kind regards,

Cal

Thanks, oh Arthur, Son of Uther Pendragon, Sovereign of all England, who was chosen by GOD to embark on this most holy Quest for the Grail! Oh wait, That was Graham again. Dang. I have a bad memory. What are the first few moves of the Modern Defence? heh heh kidding.

Bah ! Arthur never would have got anywhere in life it wasn't for the help he got from the knights of Nid. Those famous mounted knights whose trademark attack involved galloping into battle without their horses. It was Arthur who used to do the sound effects for them with a couple of coconut shells.

A terrifying sight and sound...no wonder the Saxons used to run away !!
