e4 and d4 are both good in their own ways
but can anyone explain how and why one move is better than the other?
I personally think they are equal. Both moves control central squares, both allow the bishops out and that's it. It's a matter of personal taste i believe
This topic needs to die and stay dead.
Yes, because you don't run into dragons. I'm scaaarred, of dragons.
i like d4, i have no clue about chess but my layman feel is, that you seem to have control when playing d4.
well at least in queens gambit and slave defense.
*Slav, but it isn't a coincidence that the words are similar as Slav derrives from slave, probably because a great deal of them were slaves in Roman times. I don't know the exact history but heard that somewhere.
