Its nowhere near so straightforward. 2...e6 is one of the best responses to the Tromp. It is employed by many of the worlds top players and is well respected by Peter Wells in his new book.

In particular 3. ...h6 4. Bxf6 Qxf6 5. Nf3 has absolutely no bite at all for White and is at best equal. 5.c3 or 5.Nc3 are better tries rather than transposing back into a Torre.

1.d4 Nf6 2. Bg5 e6 (bad move i think) 3. e4 seems best, aiming to controlling the center

here are some of black's best responses, which all lead to fairly positional games.  White seems to keep an edge:

3. ...Be7 4. e5 Nd5 5. Bxe7 Qxe7 6. c4! dominates the center.

3. ...d5 4. Nd2 Be7 5. e5 Nfd7 6. Bxe7 leaves black in an ugly French without his good bishop.

3. ...h6 4. Bxf6 Qxf6 5. Nf3 this occurs a lot in the Torre Attack, again with a good position.

Would it be possible to see something on d4 Nf6 Bg5 e6 at some stage?

regards
