Mar-16-04  ConLaMismaMano: It starts like a Nimzovich-Larsen Attack, then in the first seven moves, white's position seems like a Dutch opening. Afterwards, in move 14 the game looks like a Sicilian Defense, pretty akward game.
Jul-24-04  Everett: ConLaMismaMano. don't really see dutch or sicilian, but do see a double-fianchetto and c4 played... resembling a Reti more than anything else
Jun-27-07  willyfly: <Everett><ConLaMismaMano>The Nimzo-Larsen Attack frequently transposes into other opening systems. In his book on the subject, Raymond Keene suggests further study of the Dutch, English, Reti and Catalan, Modern Defence reversed, King's Indian attack, Queen's Gambit Declined (Tarrash), Queen's Indian Defence, King's Indian Defence, Neo-Grunfeld Defence, Bird's Opening, French, Sicilian and Caro-Kann Defences.

It is due to the amorphous nature of 1 b3 that Black can give a multitude of responses, all of which are sound. As a beginner I have learned a lot about other openings while studying the NLA.

Feb-22-15  L.J.Davison: Amorphous Nature?? I like that and it is so true!!
