    Hard quest, that many players apparently have pursued.

    For Black, there is not much contestants to 1.e4 f5.

    For White, hard to tell, but 1.a4 and 1.h4 both stand a better chance than 1.f3 in my view.

    yeah but at least you could sort of do fianchetto, with a little more space for black to attack

    1. g4 a very bold option for white.

    honestly it's kind of hard to say because my friend pushed every single one of their pawns up before moving any other pieces and beat someone with a higher rating

    That's really only possible on low levels.  Above 1200 or so, I doubt it would happen.

    Against me, a good player could get away with any first move as White without much trouble. It would need a very good player to get away with 1.e4 f5 as Black though.

    1.g4 is called Fric's Opening, and in other parts of the world it is called Kolibri's Opening.

    It's also called the Grob attack

    Usually the best move is e4 or d4, but e4 can be worst against a better opponent considering scholars checkmate.

    1. g4 sure is horrible, but it still does something; that is, it "helps" develop a piece. My vote has to be on 1. h4. After 1... d5, which is such a lovely move anyway, you can't develop anything as a result of 1. h4. Besides, even if you manage to develop your rook it'll only get chased around anyway. AND you've wrecked your king side! ;)

    1. h4.

    (h3 is a different story altogether)

    I have make bad moves recently, really bad moves. It's because I am mentally low and cannot concentrate on chess. I hope I can pick myself up really soon.

    Dude, I've been there. Whenever I can't concentrate and I notice that I'm hanging pieces left and right, I'm spending time on the forums. :)
