    Bizarre question ;) in my blitz repertoire i have only the Italian game. In correspondence i think nothing. This is a bit strange, since most openings are named after european places.

    I played the Spanish (Ruy Lopez) a lot, so I'll take that. The Sicilian of course, and the Dutch. Does Russia still count as Europe? If so I'll add the Leningrad. :P

    Whenever I play the King's gambit with black I also like the Abbazia variation.

    Some of my favorite openings when I'm in Europe:

    Bonjour, comment vous êtes, je joue aux échecs

    Hola, cómo estás, yo juego de ajedrez

    Hallo, wie geht es dir, ich spiele Schach

    The list goes on...

    Aren't most of the openings of European origin?

    I say most, but not all.  The Wilkes-Barre did come to my mind as well, but it is also known as the Traxler which is Czech-origin yes?

    Sicilian Defense, French Defense, Petroff Defense (Russian Defense), Spanish Game, Scandanavian Defense, Budapest Gambit, Berlin Defense, Austrian Attack and Vienna Game are all the openings I use with European influences that I can think of off the top of my head... :x

    I don't think I've ever heard of "modern" Where in Europe is it?

    What's a "European Influence?" The fact that the opening is named for someplace in Europe? How about openings and variations named after GMs from Europe?
