Unknown Chess Opening

From: Alejandro Cuenca
contacting you because I have a question. I am teaching my
son to play Chess and I recalled an opening we played in
College back in the 70's whose name I can't remember.
Also, at school, my son's
friends which are learning Chess too, told him that this
opening does not exist. The truth is that it is quite weird
and I 'm sending it to you for review and clarification.
It is exclusively a initial
move and it begins by moving two Pawns one square
simultaneously ending in the b3, g3 squares if playing white
or b6, g6 squares if black.
Thanks in advance and
congratulations for the wonderful site that you have
The opening you
are referring to does not exist or have a name since moving two
pieces simultaneously is illegal.
However, there is
a name for an opening starting by 1. b3 which is called Nimzo-Larsen Attack
or 1. g3 called Benko's Opening.
