    Which one is considered to be the worst one?

    Doesn't really matter what you start off with.. you can always transpose it to a better opening.

    What about 1. xd8 :-)

    That's the best first move. Almost unbeatable.

    Oh Master ! Teach us more. Don't bring your anti-revolutionary drivel to a good thread panda boy , I am still your father and I'm telling you 1. a3 is bad.

    Better mind your own business.. not planning to counter your stupid comments right now.

    did anyone notice in the movie Knights of the South Bronx that the girl played e4 and then Ke2 in her first 2 moves?

    Maybe she was a Bongcloud-Master?!?

    wow, never knew that that was actually an opening.  And I actually see threads on this opening - I thought it was some drug joke or something like that.

    This is totally rad.

    The joke's transcendence is pretty awesome.

    Its not only an opening, its a religion...Innocent

    After more reflection 1. h4 is not that bad.  By process of elimination the only move I see that might be theoretically losing is 1. g4.

    Show me the refutation of 1.g4....you cant be serious if you really think that 1.h4 and 1.f3 are better than the Grob! Surprised

    The Grob is definitely underestimated!

    1. f3 is the improved Grob. The point is that no matter what black does 2. g4 is comming and is unstoppable.

    1. h4 is the worst in my opinion. At least f3 controls the center. There's no way the worst move is Na3 or Nh3 developing a piece.

    1. h4 does almost nothing except weaken the kingside. 1. a4 may be second worst.

    +1 :)

    1. f3 and 2. g4 are the worst, at least if the black can play 2. Qh4#.
