2. Bg5
This is ever so frustrating for me when i face this after 1. d4 d5. 2...Nf6 runs straight into the swap, which leaves black with problems defending his kingside and centre and a relatively passive gam...

Tromp with 2...e6 3. e4 c5
The interesting move 3... c5 (rather than the main line 3... h6) made me give up the tromp some time ago, especially 3... c5 4. e5 h6 5. Bc1 Nd5 6. c4 Nb4!. This knight move is not covered in Well's b...
