I found 4 openings that manage to flick in an early e5:
- My beloved Fajarowitsch, which has two problems: it provides no answer for Nf3, and I can't imagine that I will still play it when I reach 2200. In contrast with more solid gambits like the KG.
- The Albin Counter Gambit. I fired up 6 cc- games with it. The first results don't look promising. The gambit seems to do nothing else than to stir up things, but it has no solid positional basis, in my opinion. Confusion for the sake of confusion simply doesn't work by everybody.
- The KID. You need to make a lot of difficult manoeuvres in very little space in order to be able to play e5 and f5. I found no new ideas beyond what I allready have tried in the past.
- The Leningrad Dutch.
It goes for the throat of the white king, and that is familiar territory. I fed Bookup with a database of the games of GM Danielsen with the Leningrad and I fired up another 6 cc-games with it. I hope the opening will meet my demands.
