Completely new Opening?

Apr 1, 2014, 1:28 PM |

Do you ever wonder if all openings are already studied in depth? Do you think that chess openings that are never considered good will be in a new generation of chess become good solid openings?

We do not see many Philidors openings, Alekhines defence etc now in modern tournaments, though Philidor and Alekhine were once prominent chess players.

Will it be possible that some years later, modern openings like, Queens Gambit, Sicilian Defence, Gruenfeld etc.. are exploited and become weak openings.

Or will someday opening moves like 1.h4, 1.g4 become strong theoretical openings.

Do you know?
