Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-18-04  Knight13: I've seen these kind of openings. It's played often on 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 g6 games. I like it.
Feb-26-05  Backward Development: This is a very benign variation, favored by those who just play your standard d4/c4/nc3/e3/Nf3/Bd3/0-0/etc. type setup. Black usually has no problems equalizing in this line.
