Durkinís Opening

The Durkin Opening (1.Na3) by White is basically a bad move. The Knight is on the edge of the board and will be subject to capture by the Black bishop. White might plays ď2.b3Ē to avoid having to ruin the queenside pawns to recapture (the Knight is then protected by the Bc1), but itís still a bad place to put the Knight.
