U should find an opening which u know well ,understand its ideas and can use it quite well at ur level....
If black doesn't want to lose against d4, which one should he/she pick?
QGD or NID/QID?
In my very limited experience, the QGD, the Nimzo seems far more complex and dynamic.
None of them,cause u will never find an opening that black always wins or white always wins......
Well obviously, this is redundant.
perhaps you may like this trap it could fool some people
youre really into that trap arnt you? lol, youve posted it on like 10 threads
Why not go for the Dutch then?
what can i say its a nice trap
Dude dont post any comments that beginners need not learn openings. Just answer the question
I've found 3 openings that most of you said. Vote for them or tell any other eligible candidate.
if you dont want lots of lines you can rule out the KID, Nimzo is fairly theory heavy as well, especilly considering you need another defence if they play 3.nf3. so go with QGD.
it depends, what do you play against e4
The KID is my favorite anti-d4 opening, but it isn't what I would call "solid". Not the way I play it, anyway.
I like the Phenelomorphin Defense.
Queen's Gambit Accepted probably has the least theory.Maybe you could pick something offbeat that way neither you nor your opponent know what is going on. Budapest Defense, Albin Counter-Gambit, and the Dutch all come to mind.
In my experience defenses with pawns are on light squares are usually safer than defenses with pawns on dark squares. Maybe this can be helpful to you.
Kings Indian defence and Benko gambit are my personal favorites.
There has chessmaster 8000 edition (I don't remember exact edition) which has a opening tree againt d4, e4, etc. I found that all those openings are solid.
slav with 4...dxc4
I enjoy the Baltic Defense against the Queen's Gambit.
