If 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 :)
