Oct-28-04  xqdashi: This opening is a St. George Defense
Oct-28-04  Morphystyle: The St. George is the opening Miles used to defeat Karpov in 1980. It was a psychological ploy, Karpov was insulted that Miles would play such a terrible opening against him.
Oct-28-04  Morphystyle: I have used opening this to mess with people. For me, it often transposes into a the sicilian kan or tainimov.
