The Two Knights Tango is a rarely played defense against 1. d4 but it can be tricky Black's superior structure allows his pieces to develop more harmoniously.
Table of contents

Orlov rechristened the opening the "Black Knights' Tango". Since , the opening has been employed by a number of strong grandmasters, including Victor Bologan , Joel Benjamin , Larry Christiansen , and Alex Yermolinsky. Although fairly uncommon, the "Tango" has a sounder positional basis than most other offbeat openings: Black develops quickly, has a flexible pawn structure , and is prepared to strike back in the center with The most common move, preventing Nc3 Bb4 transposing to the Nimzo—Indian Defense ; [14] [15] 4.

Nc3, or to a Bogo—Indian Defense after 5. This is White's second most popular move. Nf3, transposing to an English Opening. Nf3 Ng6, or transpose to the King's Indian Defense with, for example, 5.

Another interesting but relatively unexplored idea is Nf3 are also possible , whereupon Black follows up with From that position, the main possibilities are 5. These possibilities can also be reached via transposition from the Flohr—Mikenas Variation of the English Opening 1.

Based on the material covered in 64 minutes, I calculate it would take me 7 hours and 6 minutes to complete this game. I believe this is called "getting bogged down in theory. So how does one use all this information? I could not even consider going completely through all these games. I should also point out that the Fritz analysis of the variations, sub-variations, game fragments, etc. It's more like doing a series of middlegame problems than learning an opening.

The only answer seems to be to just go through the text moves and skip the variations unless there is some compelling reason not to such as it's an alternative book move or the move you or your opponent made. How good is the repertoire? Nf6 some time ago.


Attacking with 1d4 (Everyman Chess): Angus Dunnington: resyxusifa.ml: Books

Unfortunately there are way too many bad recommendations such as the Slav ld4 d5 2c4 c6 3Nc3 Nf6 4Bg5 which after I suspect this is the line Mr. Hartley referred to but made a typo of c5 for c6. But since we know that Dunnington always recommends d4,c4 and Nc3 in order if possible, surely he would recommend ld4 Nf6 2c4 Nc6 3Nc3 and then the repertoire Mexican defense response is Na6 is Black's best move. I went through Grandmaster Aaron Summerscale's book "A Killer Chess Opening Repertoire" also a 1 d4 repertoire in the same fashion and it passed with flying colors.

My recollection is that every single line he recommends is very strong for White. I strongly recommend that book and the repertoire. I have been using it with some success for some time and it is very nice to never have to face a King's Indian, Grunfeld, Nimzo-Indian, Benko, etc.

My advice is forget about embarking upon the Herculean task of putting this material in some usable form because this repertoire isn't strong enough to make even a very small effort to learn it. Whatever you're playing now is probably better. Admittedly my database only goes through but in reviewing it I found that International Master Dunnington plays mostly 1 Nf3 and a fairly large number of 1 d4 games but does not play any of the "Attacking with 1 d4" lines himself.

I don't blame him, neither will I. I hope this has been helpful to someone. See all 6 reviews. Most recent customer reviews.

For now, I'm sticking with Nf3.

Playing against the Two Knights Tango

My understanding is that 3. Nf3 is theoretically better than 3. But practically it depends on whether you want to play any kind of Nimzo. I find Nimzo players to be really good at Nimzo type positions, even inferior ones. It may behoove me to figure out what I'm doing against the Nimzo since it is somewhat popular.


At the moment though, I consider the line I gave as a mild surprise to the Tango player because I don't believe this article goes into the 5. Possibly because the right way for black to handle 5.

I poked around the internet for material on 5. Nf3 and there is hardly any there, so this is potentially a hole in the typicaly Tango prep. I'm almost suprised that I'm right that 5. Nf3 scores better when black tries to force the Tango with 5. Ng6 than when black transposes to a KID with 5. Of course, I've been wrong before. Chessbase statistics also support that 5. Nf3 fares better than 5.

Then, note that the average player who chooses 5. Nf3 is stronger than the average player who chooses 5. Finally, note that the performance rating of those who choose 5. Also interesting is 5. You chose that as your sixth move, but the strongest players seem to choose that as their fifth move.

The bishop obviously belongs on g5 where as you say the pin is hard to break. In general giving your opponent less information and remaining flexible is a good idea because in every line he calculates he has to consider both options. The choice between 7.
