1. e3 - Van 't Kruijs Opening[edit | edit source]

An irregular opening, considered somewhat passive. Play may transpose to lines of the English Opening (c2–c4), Queen's Pawn Game (d2–d4), or reversed French Defence (delayed d2–d4), reversed Dutch Defence (f2–f4) positions or the modern variation of Larsen's Opening (b2–b3).

Statistics[edit | edit source]

Not enough data as opening is rarely played.
