Agincourt Kangaroos & Other Quasi-French Opening
Compiled by Domdaniel
--*--

1...e6 is good against any first move by White. The most often seen is 1.d4 e6, offering a transposition to a French or, after 2.c4, a QGD, Dutch, Nimzo, etc. But there are also some interesting and little explored byways, including 2...Bb4+, the Kangaroo. These are some of the byways.

Taimanov in Korchnoi mode, plus harmony.
Portisch vs Taimanov, 1959 
(A13) English, 25 moves, 0-1

An exquisite Queen sac & mate by Dearing.
J Rudd vs E Dearing, 2004 
(A07) King's Indian Attack, 38 moves, 0-1

One Kangaroo, not quite Tied Down. Sport.
P Short vs G McCarthy, 1978 
(E00) Queen's Pawn Game, 26 moves, 1/2-1/2
