  3. Move 1 wins a pawn (960)

1.d4 was a mistake, but black to move and prove it.

The opening fires up in that starting position.

Those diagonal attacks, especially checks, seem like the most important things to watch out for in 960 openings. I heard Nakamura say he never moves king pawns in 960 openings unless he has a good reason, but I seem to find the diagonal attacks are usually more dangerous than the vertical ones.
