1..b6; Part 1 - Owen's Defence 1.e4,b6; 2.d4,Bb7

Is 1 ..b6 the final frontier of opening theory in our computer age? The positions that can be reached are fresh, original, and remarkably diverse.

White often gains a broad pawn centre with 3.e4. Black uses his minor pieces to control the centre and dismantle it with pawn breaks f5 , d5, & c5. Speedy attacks from the start with an easy plan to remember and follow. Start the game attacking e4 with Bb7, Bb4, f5, Qh4, or Ne7. Great for blitz chess: White has less time to figure out what to do which can result in quick wins for Black.

This 1..b6 repertoire is a combination of 2 openings:
Foxy Vol. 195 The Owens Defence 1.e4 b6 2.d4 e6
Foxy Vol. 196 The English Defence 1.d4 b6 2 c4 e6

5 Reasons to Play 1..b6
1. A lifetime repertoire that you don't need a lifetime to learn
2. Black scores 51% to 65 in most lines.
3. 1..b6 is not well known which allows the possibility for your opponent to go wrong.
4. Easy plan to follow - just attack e4
5. 1..b6 has been played on the highest level which includes GM’s Carlsen, Nakamura, Nepominachtchi, Firouzja, Kamsky and Kramnik.

Published 2021. Video running time: 2 hours 50 minutes.
