Hi, everyone!
I am wondering if anyone plays 1 e4 g5, the so-called Macho Grob (Basman Defense), or Borg. What do you think of this opening?
Please give some lines to discuss. Thanks!

St George theory and praxis
There are not too many Forum threads on the St George so I thought I’d open a new one. I’ve been having a look at some of the critical(?) lines and would be interested to hear people’s views.

Transposing from Nimzowitch defence to Pirc
