Here it is not as easy to co-ordinate your portals (as in Warp Point Chess) since each side only gets one and they have to work together. Moreover, your portal may also fall in the category of games where Black has something to counterbalance White's first move. After my opponent played 1. e4, I played, 1...V-e2, obstructing his bishop and Queen and threatening 2...b7-b5 threatening his queen.
