Yes, white may equalize with 1.b4 provided he plays accurately  Grin

I hope that succinctly answers your question amstaff.

Take care

wow, that has many names Smiley
Some masters, and even some gms (lapshun has planned it against another gm) play it occasionally. A master has played it against me. Some pet lines if you are comfortable with the positions are good for you.

The Sokolsky Opening is 1.b4.  I don't think it can fight for an opening advantage the way 1.e4,1.d4,1.c4 and 1.Nf3 (1.g3!?) can, but its certainly playable.  Ifyou're comfortable with the resulting positions then you could have reasonable success with it.

Hello, is the Sokolsky Opening playable OTB (with success) at the master level these days?
