DLM Openings

Eventually I want to deeply prepare at least one opening that lends itself to De La Maza's approach. Here is my current list, which includes both solid and wild types:

1. e4 e5 2. d4 exd4 3. c3

French Exchange
1. e4 e6 2. d4 d5 3. exd5 exd5 4. c4

King's Gambit
1. e4 e5 2. f4

Sicilian Defense, Alapin Variation
1. e4 c5 2. c3

Sicilian Defense, Grand Prix Attack
1. e4 c5 2. Nc3 Nc6/d6 3. f4

Queen's Gambit Declined, Exchange Variation
1 d4 d5 2 c4 e6 3 Nc3 Nf6 4 cxd5 exd5

Queen's Gambit Declined Slav, Exchange Variation
1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. cxd5 cxd5

Elephant (as Black)
1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 d5

King's Gambit Declined, Falkbeer Counter Gambit (as Black)
1. e4 e5 2. f4 d5

Hennig-Schara Gambit (as Black)
1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nc3 c5 4.cxd5 cxd4

Queen's Gambit Accepted (as Black)
1. d4 d5 2. c4 dxc4

Scandinavian aka Center Counter Game (as Black)
1. e4 d5

Soller Gambit (as Black)
1. d4 e5 2. dxe5 Nc6 3. Nf3 f6

Some of these come from comments by Temposchlucker, Chris Kilgore, and Margriet. The rest I gathered myself.


Completed circle 7 of problems 160-204.

I posted my repertoire.
From the above most openings are playable. Only the Soller Gambit is not good. You do too much positional consessions. I tried it myself.
Oh, I forgot, I have bad experience with the Toilet variation of the Grand Prix attack.
The Colle System for white may be worth examining. It has excellent potential for the Classic Bishop Sac. as well as probably some other crazy sacrifices.
Toilet variation, hmm - ok. I'll see if I can stay out of the toilet!

I occasionally play the Colle Sytem, and I like it as White as long as Black isn't heavily prepared.
It is a very nice game silkroad gold, I like sro gold. You can play it silkroad online gold, you can buy the cheap silk road gold. You smart and buy cheap silkroad gold.
