St. George Defence[edit | edit source]
Development keeps going. Black should now play 3...Bb7, putting pressure on the e pawn (remember that White cannot play Nc3 to protect the pawn !). 3...e6 can also be played (and will anyway be played at some point in the opening), but why giving White more liberty when it's possible to force the following moves ?
