Tango 4...Na5
As I was prepping my white repertoire for possible black responses, I spotted a move in the Tango.  1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 Nc6 3 Nf3 e6 4 a3 Na5.  Black takes aim at the c4 square in the style of Nimzovich, an...

The Knight's Tango
My coach tells me I need to pick up a new defense as Black against 1.d4 .  I'm not comfortable with 1.d4 d5, and he says my current opening (The Grunfeld) is much too tactical and dynamic for a positi...

Black Knight's Tango (A50)
    It sure seem the right place to discuss the black knight's tango opening. Maybe the reputation is bad on account of the following :

1.d4 Nc6 2.d5 Ne5 3.e4
Is this variation dangerous for Black? Although White gains space in the centre, it seems as though Black would be able to counterattack the centre with a move such as 3...e6. But then 4.f4 Ng6 5.de6 ...

Tango players: what if white doesn't play 2. c4?
I am a patzer (~1200 rating at ICC), and have started to look at openings. To d4, I have decided to play the Two Knights Tango (1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 Nc6), using Palliser's excellent book. My problem is, wh...

Any advice on 1.d4 Nc6 2.c4 e5!?
I'd like to know peoples views on this line. Obviously you have to be prepared to enter a Nimzowitsch after 2.e4, but this seems to me to be something of a 'souped-up' tango.
I found this in an o...

Two Knights' Tango; 3 Nf3 e6 4 a3
The Tango surely remains a good choice for the club player as Black against 1 d4, but is sadly yet to be properly covered on the website. Perhaps that's because White often continues 1 d4 Nf6 2 c4 Nc6...
