Hey everyone ,
I ve been playing d4 since th beginning of my chess career and I feel like i want to switch to e4 cause i kinda feel like i,m a little bit good i tactical posotions which aise after e4 openinngs rather than th mostly blocked ones from d4. Any advice for me would be gladly accepted :) Also is there any kinda good openning for me to take on when switching to e4? ( also for your knowledge i have been playing french as my choice o defense or e4 ).
You are much higher rated than I am. But, I would think, if you like the French and wish to switch to e4, you may wish to look at the Scotch?
Scandinavian has taken the fun out of 1.e4 either the 2...Qxd5 or 2...Nf6 lines and at the lower levels it's a very popular opening.
I kinda like playing against the scandinavian. You can either get an improved caro-kann (3. Nc3 Qa5 variations) or simply a solid space advantage (3. Nf3!? variations)
The Scandinavian what? LOL.
E4 is fun
For a start, the d3-c3 ruy lopez, closed sicilian, main line french (you know how to play the structures) and mainline caro-kann. Then you can slowly change to the open sicilian and mainline ruy lopez when you need a better repertoire.
