Yes! I actually made a video about that game, really interesting idea to play ..g5 to undermine white's pawn center - Cheers, Will

against carlsen in 2010 nakamura used g5 around the moment in 5:56, i guess, which is pretty interesting

Kings indian is the reason why I usually prefer playing as black.

I'm always happy when I see e6 against my e4. Black's light square bishop usually ends up bing a pretty useless piece.

I think the French is also a good opening for beginners because it allows for a lot of expansion later on. From the French, there are plenty of similar pawn structures: the QGD, the Caro-Kann, and some lines of the Sicilian, which is a lot of ground for expanding your repertoire. From here, obviously the QGD is a bit like the Slav, same with the Caro, the Sicilian Dragon can lead you into the Modern and Pirc, and the Grunfeld and King's Indian... It goes on. The French introduces you to chess!

I recommend people check out the Scandanavian Qd6 line. Great opening, awesome piece harmony, easy to memorize. Forces a positional game and white is rarely ready for it.

well i did make a similar series on the Slav Defense for black against 1. d4 - also another beginner series for playing the Stonewall Attack with white

i find white trys to attack agressively my kingside with a bishop pinning the development/kingside castling of my king. i just started using it today however.. consistantly like my english for white.. i do like it! any other openings ud suggest for a beginner like myself for black or any variations for the english as white?
