    My favorite is 1.Nc3, usually called the Durst or Van Geet opening (wikipedia gives 12 different names. ), and the Vienna Gambits, which I frequently transpose to after 1.Nc3 e5 2. e4 (usually arrived at by 1.e4 e5 2.Nc3) Nf6 3.f4 or 2... Nc6 3. f4.

        I almost always use 1.e4 as white. If black answers 1.....e5, then I will either play 2.Bc4 the Bishops Opening, 2.Nf3 heading towards the Scoth Opening (2...Nc6 3.d4), or sometimes 2.Nc3.

        I don't play the Bishops Opening with the intent of getting a 3 move mate. I play 2.Bc4 because it's solid and aggressive. I've read that the second move is too soon for white to tell where to put the f1 Bishop. But since black played 1....e5, instead of, say, 1....e6 French or 1...c6 Caro Kan, I think c4 is a fine place for whites Bishop.

        I seem to get a pretty good game playing the Bishops Opening, and have no plan to abandon it any time soon.

    I don't mind the king's gambit. Ruy Lopez is another favorite.

    Parham Attack, is almost an instant win after ...e5. Sometimes I get sick of instant wins however and play the queenside fried liver.

    Check out the Veresov - it often transposes to a king pawn opening!

    Gavinator: Wonder if you ever watch that comedy friends. The young guy behind the bar. Forget his name. Anyway he played Gary Kasparov in a friendly match back when Kasparov was world champion and the Friends star opened with the Parham Attack. Kasparov handled him quite easily.
