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“.
