I favor unorthodox openings, as these have given better results than more conventional lines. 1.a3 is a ready line for me (I've faced, no joke, every opening reply by Black against it--even Nh6 on one occasion) as White; I prefer to play as Black if given the choice (I find playing Black more versatile).

schnarre: ...<Brenin> Nicely put!

schnarre: ...Good use of minor pieces by White.
   Jan-01-21 A Becker vs Szabo, 1935 (replies)
schnarre: ...<Honza Cervenka> By move 15 White really doesn't have many options with such a constricted position. Perhaps 15. Nc2 with the intent of forcing a later b4 following the Rook exchange as a possible start?!
   Jan-01-21 J H Pannekoek vs A Bahnert, 1923
schnarre: White should win on the Queenside here.
   Jan-01-21 L S Phillips vs J McRae, 1870
schnarre: Yet another game that shows the hazards of deploying the Queen too early.
   Jan-01-21 T Neumueller vs P Hofmann, 1989
schnarre: Have to wonder if Black expected the delayed exchange: Black's play after move 7 shows little familiarity.
   Dec-23-20 Lasker vs Capablanca, 1935 (replies)
schnarre: ...<WorstPlayerEver> Indeed! White has free & active piece play very early on in this game.
   Dec-21-20 B Ellena vs B Wall, 1979
schnarre: ...A good example of 'greed doesn't pay'!
   Dec-20-20 F Velikhanli vs S Sulskis, 1999
schnarre: 3...Be7 reminds me of the Cunningham line in the King's Gambit Accepted, but without the active play: it seems too slow when used in the Philidor.
   Dec-19-20 Kryvoruchko vs B Brinck-Claussen, 2006
schnarre: ...Can we say "oops".
