I don't think this is an unreasonable question, as the answer is clearly 1...d5. There is no torre attack, no tromp. Richter/Jobava attack comes after both 1...Nf6 and 1...d5. The only things I can think of that black now has to face are the psuedo tromp, the psuedo torre, and the BDG, all of which are a joke.

^^^ This ^^^

If people could answer such general and deep questions about the game, we'd be much worse off. This question is especially pointless given that most average club players don't have the repertoire depth to answer 1.d4 with both 1...d5 and 1...Nf6.

Undecided

This has been done to death before. Pointlessly.

Hi,

Objectively speaking, which move is stronger for Black to thwart and defeat the d-Pawn Specials: 1...Nf6 or 1...d5 ?

In other words: Against which move are the d-Pawn Specials less effective: 1...Nf6 or 1...d5 ?

PS: Please don't just vote without thinking for the move you personally play, try to be objective and unbiased.
