    I say a4 for unsubstantiated reasons.

    The Queen's Rook is not only a better protector of pawns, it is also more hansdome.

    Every time I visit the opening forum, I get a fine reminder of why I don't visit the opening forum very often.

    Which is better: complaints about naughty behavior by crybabies or discussions of Fischer as a nutjob?

    I would say a4.  The "h" is needed for the thread title.

    Actually I thought it was a clever pun as I was eating a peanut butter and potato chip sandwich at the time.

    a4 is better, because h4 weakens the king.

    A4 as it doesn't let down the kings defence.

    Both moves are horrible, but check the ranking of openings I listed in one of my blogs.

    1. a4 is much better: CASTLE KINGSIDE! h4 weakens the kingside

    h4 is MUCH better. It attacks the king. Some white moves could be h4,h5,h6,d4,nc3, bf4,qd2,o-o-o,g4,g5...
