Carr Defence Edit
A mirrored St. George Defence, this defence is considered a very weak response to the King's Pawn Opening, as not only does it not open any lines for development and allows White quick and easy development, it additionally weakens Black's king position slightly and is a time wasting move. Black often follows up with g5, Bg7, d6, and Bg4 or Bf5. Generally, Black castles queenside in the Carr Defence.
