Gunderam Defence


Also known as the Brazilian Defense or the Câmara Defense.

2... Qe7


The idea for Black is to transpose into a King's Indian Defence [source needed], but with forceful play this option is not entirely possible.

Black could also play 3...c6,4...d6,5...Bg4 or 5...h6 and develop slowly but surely.
