I like e4; however, it is generally considered a beginner's opening. I don't know why.
d4 is a flat out blunder because you cant parham.
lol and what if i dont like parham
lol yeah right
You stopped playing the parham, whatup. What's with that?
dont care bout ur opinion what up
I play them all.
1.NF3 is great too.
1.C3 can be interesting a reversed sicilian
I love people that play 1.D4 because I can go into the kings indian defence or other variations of indian defences.
I play king pawn all day cause it helps u attack f7 square and d4 cant do that and it also controls the center and opens up ur queen and bishops in the attack instead of d4 only opening ur bishop
however I play d4 openings to throw my oponent off and so far won every game with d4 (thats how many times I've played d4 lol)
Anyways I believe the quote is "e4 is best by test"--Bobby Fischer
I've preferred d4 for 30 years. I taught myself when I was 8. I was eventually told e4 is better. d4 just seems more natural to me. Although once in a while I go with e3 or Nf3 just to entertain myself
why to chicken to go e4? lol jk but seriously go all out e4 its good for you and your game I just think d4 seems too passive for me and does not give you aggresive potential
which is better c4 or d4?
