What kind of Tournament openings would you pick if you were playing?
Larsen attack (b3)
Depends on the tournament format.
Online Blitz Tournaments - Orangutan - Players blitz you out of won positions because of the lack of time delay like over the board tourneys, so I get him down on time first.
OTB Blitz Tournaments - Mostly 1.Nf3 instead of 1.d4, slows them down. Black I'll throw out the Latvian if I'm in a must win situation
OTB Standard Tournaments - 1.Nf3 or 1.d4 as White. Caro-Kann and either Tartakower, Tarrasch, or Slav as Black, depending on mood.
Correspondence Tournaments - For the most part the same as OTB Standard - usually the most theoretical lines at that time.
