I am a big fan of Caro Kann with black. For the d4 I tend to play old Indian or Pirc, sometimes the Semi-Slavic. Caro-Kann is really fun to play and in hte endgame the black pawn structure is better. I hate blocking my c8 bishop in openings so the Slavic defence is easier to play for me. With white I hate Ruy Lopez when black answers with Marshall attack - I prefer 3. c3 or Bc4 or d4. Black comes back many times strong in Sicilian so I started to experiment with Alapin defense in order to get black into unfamiliar field, but Keres attack is nice too.
nah, h5 is the best opening
i call it the.... Stupid opening!!!
it depends on your chess rating, i think.
being more of a correspondence player than
a sharp tactician, i've looked at many Gm books
to make a study of the openings, and summarized
the info, together with new findings, in an E-book:
suitable for beginners up to 1700 or so i suspect,
look at the preview to get an idea,
paperback is coming later,
thx, there now also is a kindle version (which is cheaper):
and i'm now in the process of finishing a first the paper version
