I play e4
Current poll results as of 8/25/11 5:24 AM PST
1.b3 - best by test
f4 is a really good positional opening. I love it. Wild tactical lines are good with e4 or d4 ... ... but then there is a wild tactical variation for every move ... BUT i will still stick to f4 baing a mainly "positional" move.
+1 to c4
and for defence+1 to e4 Nf6
1.P-Q4 - solid and reliable
P-KB3 is the best possible move. Or is it the worst? Anyways, I vote for P-K4.
I play e5 three times and lose.
He really removed all my options...
