1. e4 d6 2. d4 c6
Does anyone know anything about this mystery defense?  Is it just another way of entering the Pirc, or are there independent ideas here?
Also, how would 1. ...d6 and 2. ...c6 work if white were t...

Limiting other player's options
Is there any merit to the idea of cutting down theory by choosing openings that limit your opponent's responses, like QGA, Scandinavian, and the Scotch or KG?

1.e4 gives white the advantage
I think 1.e4 is the best move and gives white the advantage.  Since there is nothing on this discussion board that would refute that statement, I guess my argument prevails.   Grin
