Hi, In selecting an opening to play against 1.d4 I've always wanted a choice that can be used as the basis against all flank openings as well. Thus for a long time I enjoyed the King's Indian and would thoroughly recommend it. There is a lot of theory but there are common themes and as you can play it again most flank lines as well, there are normally plenty of opportunities to play it.
In the interests of spreading my experience, I've changed to the semi-slav; perhaps more solid but still opportunity for counterplay and complications. One other idea is, as has been suggested by others, playing the Dutch but choosing the Leningrad i.e. with g6. I've not played it but it could turn out to be an ideal KID with f5 already played !

What about the Dutch Defence? 1.d4 f5.

I play 1.d4 and find the Dutch one of the easier systems to play against.


Hi Sombre_Seraph,
Why is that ? Do you have a particularly favoured line against the Dutch or is there a set plan you use. I ask because I am just taking up the Dutch as an alternative to the Semi Slav.
