What do you think is the most annoying opening to face?

DrewGainer

The Blackmar-Diemer Gambit is very fun! I recommend it for a fun, tricky game

i dont like to face the london because its so solid and the danish gambit because its so scary, wierd that i also play both those openings

The best thing to do against the Danish Gambit is to take on d4 and c3, but leave your pawn and develop, not taking the third pawn. White will use extra time developing their bishop and you will have a playable position.

Just don't play e5 then you don't have to deal with stupid gambits wink.png

the london is dumb and for people who cant learn real openings i agree

against the danish you can take the pawns and then play d5, Bxc5 and Nf6. If white knows their prep correctly you will get this slow endgame

out of 40 games I win 63% draw 10% and lose the rest LOL

That's the Giuoco Piano Game: Four Knights Game, and I do everything in my power to avoid it. Who wouldn't?

I assume after Ng3 black plays e4?

The opening which we played most. at some point it gets boring ig

Ruy Lopez. Super common, super uncreative and no real way to draw white out of its mundane lines.

I agree. It's very theoretical

Sicilian is annoying

DrewGainer

Try the Smith-Morra Gambit if you haven't already. Pretty fun

White opening with pawns to d4 and e3 w/o c4. Great way to catch up on sleep.

Try the a3 Sicilian (Mengarini), b3 Sicilian (Snyder), or c3 Sicilian (Alapin) for some fun

Pirc as black. Only opening I had studied was the KID and whenever I would try playing it they'd go 3. Nc3 forcing a Pirc. Made me hate it.

most annoying award goes to Nf3-c4-g3 setups. They've gone soft on the Botvinnik - Barzca - Benko diet, as fischer said.

Catalan is the top favourite Opening of Leela. 

Technically best opening choice of AI after training billions of games. 

Well catalan is generally against the ...d5 setups, I mean something like this:

 

Try this king side attck on boring double fianchetto opening!

that's an interesting attack method, but against the c6 KID setups I'm happy with the positions I get
