Closed game[edit]

The intro says it usually results in a very closed game. The page for closed game defines it as any game that starts with 1. d4 d5. Something's off here. Subcelestial (talk) 13:12, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

"A closed game" (lowercase c, g) means a position in which the pawns form chains blocking the centre of the board -- for instance, white pawns on c3, d4, e5, black pawns on c4, d5, e6. The opening 1. d4 d5 is known as the Closed Game because it often leads to closed games. (talk) 18:36, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
I guess "closed game" shouldn't link to "Closed Game", then (talk) 12:02, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
