There are a lot of solid choices against 1.d4. They are reliable, have been around for hundreds of years and are played at the highest level all the time. That’s, however one of the biggest problems with these openings; they are too well-studied and well-known even at the club level.
Indeed, you can play the King’s Indian or Benoni but those are also frequently seen openings, meaning all your opponents will know them.
To be competitive, you’ll need to dive deep into the opening theory, spend countless weeks if not months studying all lines and variations, just to survive the Opening and reach playable Middlegame…
