Yes, Nf6 is the most popular.
i was showing darth-sirius that 1.Nf6 is not a mistake besides 1.Nf6 is the most common move, much more popular than d5
DarthSirius394 and blasterdragon, why 1... Nf6 has an interrogation? Are you crazy? lol , 2. d5?? that has to have an interrogation. The 1... Nf6 is the Indian Defense (KID, QID, NID, Benoni, Benko, etc)
I once played this against the highest level difficulty computer player on my electronic chess board... I won because:
good for masters and experts but not so good for beginners.
Ruy Lopez RULES!!!!!
I consider myself a Queen's pawn player and on a side note against e4 as black have been experiementing with g6 (modern game). Not played that much at top level, but can be a surprise against ill prepared players. Thoughts and comments?
It's good! the competitor who play black need to protect his center
I think to open with Nf3 is better than d4. What do you all think? I use often that move and find it very effective.
I used to use until it got old and i started losing, but now i switch off between e4 and d4

Fischer was using e4 openings till he went over 1800. He was a terror with d4 to master. Boris could NOT beat him with his King Gambit in Iceland. I personally like the Fischer Clock!
i like this opening with the queens gambit which allows you to set up some awesome traps
d4 offers something a little different. I like it.
Fischer is Fertilizer...
What about Fischer's statement "e4. Best by test"?
