Moved to the proper forum.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

1. Nc3, e5 2. Nf3 is theory, but I have not found the line ...e4 in Keilhack and can easily understand why:
I had it once in internet-correspondence and am not too impressed by it.  2....d5 is a better try.

Angus Dunnington's Winning Unorthodox Openings contains a chapter on 1.g3. It's not tremendously detailed, but does provide a good intro. There is an illustrative game of 1.g3 e5 2.Bg2 d5 3.Nf3 which also discusses 2.Nf3.

I suppose one might also call it a North Sea defence reversed (1.e4 g6 2.d4 Nf6), but then Nf3 is going to h4 after e5-e4. But there's not much written on that either...  Roll Eyes

I'm always happier when
I'm a pawn down.

"Bent Larsen - Master of Counter-Attack" by Bent Larsen has his analysis of four games played with this sort of stuff, against Donner twice, van Scheltinga, and from the other side against Geller. It's a bit old, and doesn't focus too much on the opening, but I don't think much has changed since then. I can't think of any other books I've seen that even mention it.

On Reversed Alekhine Lines

Dear All

Reading the recent books by Kasparav on on his predecessores I noticed some openings that
look like Alekhine's played by White and with a tempo extra. I also noticed that Bent Larsen
played several games with some of these lines. Some examples are:

i)   1 g3   e5 2.Nf3 e4 ...
ii)  1 c4   e5 2.Nf3 e4 ...
iii) 1 Nc3 e5 2.Nf3 e4 ...
iv) others?


By the way, I noticed that with respect to i), Larsen prefer to wait that Black plays d5 first:
i')   1 g3   e5 2. Bg2 d5 3.Nf3 e4 ...Any reason why
And with respect to ii), Larsen appears to prefer
ii')  1 c4   e5 2. g3 c6 2.Nf3 e4 ...

Can anyone recommed books on such lines??

Thank you, lg
