Openings show what kind of person you are. See I like the fried liver attack and the Sicilian defense which shows that I'm aggressive as white but I'm defensive as black. What is your favorite opening?
So you have a split personality?
I guess what I meant was it shows what kind of player you are.
I dunno, the scicilian has some pretty wild lines in it.
I like the dragon variation it's my favorite and bobby fisher uses it quite a bit
I personally like playing the greco attack, the max lange attack, and the lolli attack (for white). But for black I either play the french or the botvinnik semi-slav. So I guess I am an attacking player who likes complications.
No offense but I hate the semi-Slav because it's so passive
The King's Gambit. Can't think of another opening that can have you walking a tightrope in fewer than 12 moves. KG games are almost always exciting and require good calculating ability and tactical vision very early in the game.
semi slav is passive? Does no one understand what positional chess is these days? *sigh*
gor example, the ultra complicated botvinnik variation, one of the most complex openings in all of chess, and surely not passive
Christiansoldier007 I understand it's a good opening but not all people like passive
I like playing the London as white and the Caro-Kann as black. They work the best for me and seem to fit how I play. If white opens up with d4 I'll play the semi slav. Don't know what kind of person that makes me..
You sound like a defensive and/or passive player. Those openings never would work for me though.
Sorry to inform you that 1. Fisher does not use the Dragon anymore for technical reasons, 2. actually he has never played the Dragon as Black.
Notice also that the openings you play show nothing at all.
I think Fischer thought the Dragon was easy to bust. Didn't he say average players could beat grandmasters with a line of play by white that went "sac, sac, mate." Fischer's pet Sicilian variation, as far as I know, was always the Najdorf.
Pfren it does somewhat show what kind of player you are although I'm kind of doubting talking back to an im
Nice I've never heard of that variation before, is played as white or black?
In FriedLiver case, I play Traxler counter attack - Yeah, I won. I'm more aggressive than you ;)
I like to play Ruy Lopez as white, but I vary a lot cause I'm bored of one and the same opening...;)
I love the traxler counter attack but I never find the chance to use it because I play the Sicilian as black.
ROFLMAO - but he might have said, "and Fischer plays it as much today as ever!"
