A very interesting defence is the "Malinoise Defence" extensively analyzed and used by Belgian IM Michel Jadoul.Here are two important main lines: 1.d4 c6 2.c4 b5!? 3.cb5 cb5 4.e4 Bb7 5.Bb5 Be4 6.Nf3 Bb1 7.Rb1 Qa5! and black wins a piece.The other main line is; 1.d4 c6 2.c4 b5 3.c5 Nf6! 4.g3 d6 5.cd6 ed6 6.Bg2 Be7 7.e4 0-0 8.Ne2 Bb7 9.0-0 Nbd7 10.f4 Qb6! 11.Nbc3 b4 12.Na5 Qa5 with an excellent game for black.This is all found in vol. #5 of Secrets of Opening Surprises chapter 14.Good luck.

How do people find these old threads? The last post on this was nearly two years ago!

1...c6 is very playable against 1.d4. In addition to the usual transpositions into the Slav or Caro-Kann, transpositions into the Old Indian Defense--Ukrainian Variation (1.d4 c6 2.c4 Nf6 3.Nc3 d6 4.e4 Nbd7 5.Nf3 e5) and some Classical Variation lines of the Pirc/Modern (1.d4 c6 2.e4 g6 3.Nf3 Bg7 4.Nc3 d6) are possible. I've also played games that have transposed into Philidor Defenses, Gruenfeld Defenses, Modern Benonis, and even Sicilian Defenses (eventually). The key is knowing what all openings and variations can be transposed into and choosing the type of position that suits your style and taste. Not opting for the usual Slav/Caro-Kann systems can have good psychological effects on one's opponent.

There is also the "De Bruycker Defence" which goes like this; 1.d4 c6 2.e4 Na6!? the idea being that if 3.Ba6?! Qa5! followed bt Qa6 regaining the piece.I found this at page 78 of Eric Schillers "Unorthodox Chess Openings", on the back cover there is a picture of Schiller smiling under which is the caption; "By the worlds leading writer on chess openings".But seriously Tony Miles has played this opening against some very tough opponents and not without success.It also avoids main line Caro Kann theory. See ECO "B" 4th edition B12.

Perhaps a good surprise weapon, once. But the second time you play it in the same tournament, Watch Out!

There is a defence called the "Malinoise Defence" invented by Belgium IM Michel Jadoul. An interesting line goes like this: 1.d4 c6 2.c4 b5!? 3.cb5 cb5 4.e4 Bb7 5.Bb5 Be4 6.Nf3 Bb1 7.Rb1 Qa5 with advantage to black!

Like Mooseter said, it usually transposes to the Slav or the Caro Kann. It doesn't have much in the way of any independent value.

I haven't tried it but you must be willing to play the Slav or Caro-Kann if your second move is to be 2. ...d5.

You could try 1. d4 e6, which gives you options of playing a French, Sicilian, Queen's Gambit, or Dutch.

1. d4 c6

Is this defence viable for black? Has anybody tried this and if so, what is your experience?
