Is there a perfect opening in chess?

Undoubtedly, there is not, for even if both sides made the same opening, one or the other would be checkmated, with no other option about it. However the odds can be turned, given that there is an equal position, and other aspects. I don't know what I'm doing here.surprise.png You have yourself a "perfect" opening! Here is an example:


1. e4, e5

2. Bc4, a6

3.Nf3,  Nf6

4. Ng5, a5

5. Nf7!........


...and black has lost a queen. These are the deadly results of LPDO (Loose Pieces Drop Off) and less development than required- queenless and it is only the 5th move for White. Instead of making so many pawn moves, Black should have developed his pieces, defended any weak pieces, and centralised  his pawns, to give escape squares for his most valuable pieces like his King and Queen.

Now let's look at this from White's perspective. White is up a tempo, ahead nine points, and overall has developed her pieces well and is in an ultimately good position for winning. Notice the vital backup the bishop gives to the knight, otherwise the King could simply chop off the Knight and White would be defeated. Or. If you want to keep the game short, When you put the bishop on c4, move to d5 ( with the same bishop) then try and get the queen to c4- Quickly. Then move to or chop of whatever is on f7 (assuming there are no defenders- remove them) and checkmate.  I should probably leave now.
