cant remember if i posted here, but the modern is annoying. I avoid the KID, but the modern can bypass most of my tricks.
Another fearsome defence in my repertoire the Queen's Indian Defence
Shoulda kept tallies... which openings won... which were considered the most feared?
I do not think there is anything an opponent can do to scare me.A great strength of the 1.Nf3 Reti is that I can choose the lines, and avoid anything I do not like.
The chinese dragon seems like a good defence as well,maybe not that "scary" but quite interesting,the least,to face(Here is a recent article published here http://www.chess.com/article/view/how-to-play-the-chinese-dragon
I'm sure this has been said before, but KID. Also Dutch is annoying
Heh, i commented on this 3 years ago and said caro kann and pirc setups. Funny thing is I still have problems vs the pirc, but at least i know alot of stuff to do against the caro.
My friend is an absolute beast with that line-probably knows every single line in it, all the ideas etc. so whenever i play mainline sicilian agaisnt him I castle kingside to avoid all that nonsense. but im pretty sure he still plays similar even after i castle kingside.
I don't know what happens if you O-O...I believe you avoid the sharpness of the sicilian with opposite castling,but you lack the easiness to play h4,g4 to harass the opponent's kingside,but whatever is more comfy for you
QGA gets me every time
a lot have changed since 8 months ago...so i was wondering,are there any new additions?
I am amazed to see the overall strenght of the people who posted here
In my opinion, the Scandanavian Defense is seriously underrated. I believe this fits on this list as well, partly due to the inherent strenghth of the opening, and partly due to most people's lack of knowlege concerning counterplay.
In truth, any defense could be incredibly fearsome if it is played by a good player.
The Denver Broncos have the most feared defense!
Then just play the open, and express your hatred by giving mate
