  FSR: Hilarious game! White actually managed to transpose into a line (the Advance French) where ...Nh6 is a good move!
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Excuse me - actually an improved (from Black's perspective) Advance French, since Black was able to play his QB out before playing ...e6. Everyone would play 1...Nh6 if White responded this way.

  louispaulsen88888888: Yes it looks like black managed to equalize easily here. I would certainly keep the center fluid as white. I wouldn’t call it a French though, as the black qb comes out and takes the KKt.

  louispaulsen88888888: Thanks to this game, that leaves only one reply to 1.d4 that is not represented in the database. The awful 1...g5?

  GrahamClayton: 22...♘c4 nice tactic, blocking the mutual support of the rook on c5 and winning the exchange.

  Penguincw: 1...Nh6 is the 19th different move ever played by black, in response to 1.d4.

1.d4 g5 has never been played, and if/when it does, it'll become the 20th and final one.

1.d4 g5 being #20 is probably the same reason 1.e4 b5 was the 20th response for King Pawn Openings.
