English Whale followed by d3. just dominate the center.absolutely amazing and i loved this game, even if i lost on time

lichess.org/RvvUFRHLMYgUIf you can get d4 in, you'll love your position
"If you can get d4 in, you'll love your position"yeah ... if ... I don't think this would ever happen against a strong opponent and then your pawn may stay on d3 for ever
Playing with a big hole on d4 seems a little scary, but in the games you showed you did get very nice positions.
I'm not even strong enough to have a strong opponent ;)
the center is not everything :)
