Black plays 1...d6
Compiled by Mating Net
--*--

These games show an interesting, relatively rare, Black response to 1.d4. These games feature many early Queen exchanges, all initiated by White. Amazingly, this exchange favors Black. This anomaly is what first attracted me to this opening. The Black King is safe in the center with the Queens off the board. Since both players are out of book almost immediately, this opening is a true test of chess skill. Almost all of these games reach an exciting endgame.
