I’d never played 1.c4 in a rated tournament before. Well, to be honest, I played it one time the other day, since I was planning on playing it OTB the next day. I don’t ever remember playing 1.c4 even online before that, so if I have it must be astronomically rare. I studied absolutely nothing but my one online game before playing this, and the English Opening actually has tons of different lines. Nevertheless, now I can say I’ve played it!
