Mieses Opening[edit]

1. d3[edit]

This move is playable but not played much as it does little to claim the center and potentially locks in the light squared bishop. Would normally transpose into the Kings Indian Attack, or with colours reversed, a modern, Pirc or Kings Indian defence.


Not enough data, as 1.d3 is infrequently played.
