I play e4- and I hate to face the french, or the kan/taimanov, or the Pirc, or the scandinavian. Really, I don't like things which create a kind of closed game in general.
As White, I play both 1. e4 and 1. d4, and I don't really hate any Black responses.
As Black, I played 1...e5 but I hate Spanish, so I switched to Sicilian.
Simply hate to see the Sicilian, gives me headaches to think how to break it! I love the Ruy lopez and my opponents fall a lot on it! French gives me shivers
I love seeing the Sicilian and playing an anti-Sicilian against it. I like facing the English as well, and starting off with a mirrored game since it seems to confuse most of the players that I've faced. I enjoy playing the Advanced Variation of the French as black.
I hate playing against the Petroff, and have been lately starting off with the Bishop's opening to avoid it. I also mildly dislike facing 1. d4, for the simple reason that I haven't had the chance to read a book on the KID yet, even though I play it. I've been busy reading middlebook games instead, and seeing 1. d4 reminds me that I'm behind schedule, in terms of studying!
I am wondering if someone can suggest how to learn openings using chess.com. I am new to this concept of everything being computerized. how does a person use the computer to learn an opening? Also what do you do when the oponent plays an unexpected move to a "book" opening? Thank You.
I love playing the Benoni, KID, and Najdorf. I hate to play against the Caro Can and French.
Hat e to see an opening I do not know well. Has to be sound however.
I am a 1. e4 player and too old to "restart" but if I had it all to do over again--I would open 1. c4 The English Opening.
Do not like to face that opening...
I play against e4 using sveshnikov= I like to play e4 c5 nf3 nc6 d4 as black. My favorite white one is v.s a hedghog setup normally coming out of a Nimzo indian 4.Qc2 c5. I hate it when my opponent plays 1.d4
and I love dealing with the french
Someone who really knows how to play 1. ..b6
As black, my favorite opening to face is this:
You know in German the Italian Game is simply called Italian and the Ruy Lopez is called Spanish.
Most dreaded..hmmm...The Catalan is fairly difficult, especially in CC. But I really dislike playing against stuff like 1.f4, its a little boring.
Favourite is the open sicilian as black.
White wins. How?
