Many, many people have been asking me about which is the best for myself and the people who are asking me. 

______________________________________________________

e4 is for generally attacking players

d4 is for tactical players

Nf3 is for defensive/positional players

c4 is for attacking/positional players

______________________________________________________

My personal preferecnce is c4 because I am a positional and attacking player. c4 lets me have complete control over the d4 square with my c3 Knight and my fianchetto light-squared bishop. I have my own made up and well-studied variation that is instead of d3 and the knight on f3; I have e3 and my knight on e2...

I generally run into positions like this where my dark-squared bishop is not active but once I achieve Rb1 and b4 my bishop goes to b2. Or I push d4 and my bishops is placed on d2.

This is why I beleive c4 is the best move for myself. If you have any questions please leave them in the comments below or email me(In Chess.com). And as always... stay coolSmile
