Dec-02-04  EnglishOpeningc4: And you wonder why no one plays the orthodox any more lol
Oct-22-05  morphyvsfischer: It's because the orthodox is so drawish and any winning chances left rest with white. Therefore, a better way to play the QGD is the Tartakower, which is a very good defense for new players to learn against 1 d4.

  gambitfan: This opening looks very boring and old fashioned... Why ?
Apr-11-07  KingG: I don't know, but bizarrely a lot of people i play online actually transpose into this from a Semi-Slav, in order to avoid the Botvinnik or Moscow variations. Although in that case, i usually go for Q-side castling instead of Rc1.
