What are the best openings for White in the past twelve months for players rated between 1000 and 2000? I was wondering the same question, so I crunched the numbers! These openings come from the Chess.com Openings popular openings page. I ranked the openings from highest to lowest White scoring percentage. Overall, White scores 52% at what I call the club level (1000-2000 rating). 

These top openings all score better for White. Check out the video to see some details on the openings. I won't spoil the rankings here in the text.

Please post in the comments:
