I want to build a opening repertoire base in the next openings:
English: 4 knights, 3 knights, Shirov counter. Mikhenas, Anglo Grüenfeld, Symetrical 4 knights, Asymetrical, Rubistein, Keres, Hedgehog, Double Fiancheto
King's Indian Fiancheto
French: Advance, Winaver, Open Tarrasch, Exchange,
QGD: Be7 Exchange, Tartakower, Bf4 Variation
English: king's pawn or symmetrical I'm not sure
I think you better add "Catalan" to Black, unless you are doing something really quirky with the QGD move order. Otherwise, 1.d4 d5 2.c4 e6 3.Nf3 Nf6 (3...c5 is the Tarrasch Defense) 4.g3
Also, as for the English as Black, do you plan to do reversed Closed Sicilian if you go 1...e5? That is e5/d6/g6/Bg7/etc. Or lines like the Reverse Dragon/Four Knights? Reason is, if you plan to do the latter, you need something for 1.Nf3. Otherwise, you could answer 1.Nf3 with 1...d6, but then you need an answer for 2.d4 instead of 2.c4.
So you might want to add "Reti" to Black as well (i.e. 1.Nf3 d5 2.c4 e6 where 3.d4 is a QGD or Catalan and other moves are the Reti)
"...I think you better add "Catalan"..."
Thanks, I add Catalan to my list.
For the english with balck for the moment I prefer lines like the Reverse Dragon/Four Knights.
I add Reti to my list. (until now I used KID against d4, c4 and Nf3 but I want to change)
Is 8 hours of chess enough for a 4 year old future world champion?
