which opening do you think is better starting with queen's pawn and why?
how about the London System?
Queenside Fried Liver
London is just a way of saying ok I am going to not lose for 30 moves and see if you make a mistake. We had a rash of young kids playing that locally and it took a year or so to break them of the anti dynamic habits it created.
Why is it ok to win in 10 moves but people are scared to lose (and learn) in 10 moves? play the queens gambit and just enjoy the ride
An old Go saying is "Lose your first 100 games quickly." [and learn from them!]
Good chess books with no chess in them?
