|Jul-16-08|| ||Cactus: <For the most part, Rittner opened 1.e4 and responded to 1.d4 with a Nimzo/Queen's Indian setup and responded to 1.e4 with 1...e6.>
Why is this here? There are a lot of people who use just one opening move, or one defence to e4, but this is the first time I've seen it mentioned.|
