    jzrmath - the Answer is because they are stupid.  d4 statistically scores better than e4 in databases.  56.1% for d4 vs 54.1% for e4.  Therefore, let's everybody get together and hurt e4 with no sympathy what-so-ever!

    Heal e4 Hurt d4. "E4 is the best by test" quote from Bobby Fischer, AND d4 ensures a boring opening, so kill d4!

    You can only take two actions per turn, and they must be different. Heal e4, hurt d4

  • #73

    Everyone hurting e4 and d4:  these are easily two of the best, if not the two best openings in chess.  The results of this forum won't be accurate because people, or mainly one person, (cough, tazerdadog, cough) are voting multiple times against legitimate openings.  Why haven't h3 and Na3 been killed yet?  Because we're too busy hurting openings because they're "boring," and not because they are unsound and unreliable.

    But if we're aloud to vote more than once - Hurt Na3, Heal d4
