Note, howe­ver, that the like of 1.a4, 1.Sa3, 1.h3 and 1.f3 will not be con­si­de­red here. Black should meet them by sim­ply deve­lo­ping his pie­ces, pos­si­b­ly in rela­ti­on to any rever­sed ope­ning which might occur. The­se are not first moves which one should lose any sleep over.

Richard Pal­li­ser emp­fiehlt in sei­nem Buch „Bea­ting Unusu­al Chess Ope­nings“ einen gelas­se­nen Umgang mit Min­der­hei­ten-Eröff­nun­gen. 1.Sh3 wird noch nicht ein­mal erwähnt. Ansons­ten eine schö­ne Arbeit mit dem wun­der­ba­ren Unter­ti­tel „dealing with the Eng­lish, Réti, King’s Indian Attack and other annoy­ing systems“.
