What to reply to 4. e5 in modern (Robatsch) def.? Hi, I'm in a game at board #596865, I'm black.

These moves are in various opening books, accept
for whites last move. My problem: why? I think it's a
good move, but it would be in opening books, right? is a pretty complete online
opening reference. Nothing there on 4. e5.

Any help is appreciated,

You probably should have prevented this by d6 I'm not going to tell you what I think you should do now until the game is over. Asking for help during games is not allowed.

Good option, but ... ... I just don't get why 3. ... Nf6 would be in that
opening book... Is it an error?

I normally don't ask for help during a game, it's just
that it's (I hope..) a standard opening, which I don't
understand for whites good reply.

What book are you using? 3. ... Nf6 doesn't appear to be in MCO-13.

crikey ! Only three moves into the game and already a tempo down !!

3...Nf6 was not a move to be proud of, you should have paid more attention to your opponents placement of his pieces rather than slavishly following opening moves from a book.

3...d6 was the required move from Black

As to where do you now put your rather sorry looking Knight ? that's your decision I'm afraid as I cannot comment on future moves on a game in progress......

Kind regards,

Sigh.. Guess you're right. Probably an error in the opening book (

Thank you both.
