There is only one Rome
But in as french we say "all paths guide to Rome".

Same for chess : 1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5" I will assume "Palerma Sicilian" and add "maybe Rome or Paris later"

My POV as "dom the mod" or "dom the chessplayer"...

I already had difficulties to classify some openings and name them to.
Because : the encyclopedia keys is order moves driven.
What I do : I usually advice to give some more moves and stop in a "well classified" position...then I process backwards, to store it in the just-fit section.

If no moves are added, facing the unknown or "not to be named" evil position or opening,...,I store it into the main section : available for books, my bug stuff of weird openings, the joking planets classification... Cool

One point is that after 3. d5 (commonly viewed as leading to +=) ed 4. ed d6 5. Nf3 Nf6 6. Nc3 Black doesn't have time for ...g6 due to Bb5+/0-0/Re1+.
I was reminded of this old thread:  http://www.chesspub.com/cgi-bin/chess/YaBB.pl?num=1190012680/8

Nope cant find it anywhere, seems to have fallen between the cracks


I suppose it is not the most theoretical of openings, and almost always transposes to something else, but 3 d5 is likely to lead to original positions if Black doesn't fianchetto his king's bishop.
This should be A43 and therefore the Nimzo/benoni section - maybe you can ask John Emms to cover it sometime?

Indeed 3. d5 is A43 (along with the Schmid Benoni and some other stuff) which is apparently in Nimzo/Benoni.


No sign of it in the Nimzo section, will widen the search to d4 specials and flank

3 Nf3 and 3 c3 would obviously transpose to the Sicilian, while 3 d5, I imagine would be found in the Nimzo/Benoni section (Weird Benonis, via 1 d4 c5).

1.e4 e6 2.d4 c5

Where is this to be found?  French? Anti Sicilian or 1.e4.. section, or is there nothing on it anywhere
