    e4= e5/c5/c6/d5/d6FrownUndecided I don't like open games.

    d4= Nf6/d5UndecidedAs white, 1.d4 will be a good move.

    Nf3= d5!SmileThis is almost the same as playing 1.d4 just having the black pieces!

    c4= c6/e5UndecidedIf I move 1. ...d5, white can capture one of my center pawns.

    e4 = alekhine defense = Laughing

    d4 = King's Indian = Laughing

    Nf3 = Nc6/Nf6 = I wait to see something I know how to respond to.

    c4 = Nc6/Nf6 = I wonder why in the world she did that.

    after 1. e4, my teacher told me to play 1...c6, the caro-kaan. but i'm not used to it. so i like it when my opponent plays 1. d4. Laughing

    I did not vote for I can not decide. All leads to interesting games. If my opponent is much better than I (s)he will beat me, otherwise I will win - independent of the first move (s)he made.

    For me it does not matter if my opponent is a woman or not. In case of a woman: I would have no chance against any of the Polgar sisters, Pia Cramling, Eva Moser, ... In case of a male: I would have no chance against Anand, Nigel Short, ...

    If I play against a male I can be shure that I have an opponent who tries to win against me. This leads often to interesting games. If I play against a woman I have an opponent who wants to treat me nice by entertaining me with the try to win against me. This leads often to interesting games.

    i think e4 is the correct move becuse we can gian control on the centre of chess board

    e4 because my strongest defense from black is the karo-cann. I'd be more worried about seeing the reti or english fearing my opponent is very strong in those lines and obviously knows them every well if they did play them against me rather then the more traditional d4 or e4

    E4 is a good move

    e4 is common for white. therefore, black anticipates e4 and is familiar with how to counter
