I've already named it:

"The Full Guard Variation"

Because if you completed the move, obviously you blocked the sucker punch. It even has a fancy name.

Now, now!  Let's try to keep it friendly.  I already deleted one post that was much too pointed. 

I'm curious to see how White finds comp after the wickedly-difficult-to-find 4...Nc6.  I would like this to be named the Morss Defense, but I rather fear it has already been named for Tim McGrew, Gunderam or somebody else who travelled too far upriver from Kinshasa in the hot season. 

These weird gambit variations aquire lofty-sounding names so very quicky, one would almost suspect it had more to do with lending them an aura of respectability than any want of terminology for referring to lines that no one ever conceived of, and would have recoiled in horror if he had.

Or you can try 1 d4 Nf6 2 Bf4 c5 3 Nf3 cd4 4 b4, the Zilbermints Anti-Benoni.


So Lev, what's the plan after 4...Nc6? To me it looks like Black is just better.


Silly Markovich, the plan is obvious.

While the black player is busy with the additional hand-eye coordination required to move knights you sucker punch him in the face.

A simple refutation, really.

Prie has said there may be something wrong for White after 1.d4 Nf6 2.Bf4 c5 and Play the London System doesn't like this line for White either and therefore recommends the 2.Nf3 move-order. However, I fail to see what is wrong for White here. Is there really something wrong here for White?


So what's your problem with 2.Nf3?

3...Qb6 is awkward for white without the insertion of Nf3/e6. As far as I can tell white has to start fighting just to stay equal from that point on.
