Paisley -- If this is not correct, will you tell me what's wrong with it? I'm still confused on the Bristol answer.

Hi Matthew,

I don't think we are looking for the official name from 11-16 openings, I think it's a "nick name" given to this opening by common players to have been found playing at the barber shops, General stores and feed mills years ago. I think there's a clue in the way the question is worded (woodsy). I don't know the answer yet but I'm thinking it will have to do with the name of a tree or the forest or something. Keep searching for the answer my friend. We'll see who comes up with it first, LOL.

Regards, "Pal"

It's been a bear trying to find the answer to this one but I think I'm on the right track now, I'll post my answer later. Matthew are you still looking for the answer?

hehe no, I gave up when I was never told why my answers were wrong. I did not know anything more to guess.

Matthew, Pal directed you in the right direction--you will find the answer in the woods. (Cont.)

I caught that theme, but I don't think I know the answer. I think my guesses were close.
