What opening do you hate facing the most?

Slav defense too. Love playing it, hate playing against it.

EDIT: I meant the Slav Indian.

Interesting is that because you would prefer to play heavy theory in the nadorff? 

 

I find it funny how many people avoid the Sicilian because of all the Anti-Sicilian lines.

 

I play an anti-Sicilian myself as White, following the footsteps of Smyslov, Spassky, and Suttles, and have excellent results over the board with the Closed Sicilian, but that is because playing what you understand and clicks is often better than playing what is absolutely the theoretically best line.  Does not mean other lines are unsound, they are just equal, like the Closed Sicilian, rather than a slight advantage for White.  It also does not mean you should play garbage like 2.c4 or 2.h4.

 

That said, why did I quit playing the Sicilian as Black?  The Open Sicilian!  Being one that mostly played the Taimanov (occasionally Najdorgf), the 7.Qf3 lines became really annoying!

 

Now it is all French all the time for me against e4!

I fully agree with you, It also really throws off the opponent!, Thanks for the insight!!!

Fried deliver, 4 knights, and for trick belong with 1.Pe4, which is always the move I play first when white (It is my favorite first move).

It is just 1.e4 and Fried Liver!
