Wich is better a4 or h4?

  • #1

    I say a4 for unsubstantiated reasons.

  • #2

    The Queen's Rook is not only a better protector of pawns, it is also more hansdome.

    Every time I visit the opening forum, I get a fine reminder of why I don't visit the opening forum very often.

    Which is better: complaints about naughty behavior by crybabies or discussions of Fischer as a nutjob?

    id say just insta-resigning is better Wink

    I would say a4.  The "h" is needed for the thread title.

    Actually I thought it was a clever pun as I was eating a peanut butter and potato chip sandwich at the time.

    why not e4? that is standard. if not, then d4?

  • #10

    why are they bad?

  • #11

    a4 is better, because h4 weakens the king.

  • #12

    A4 as it doesn't let down the kings defence.

  • #13

    yes, but why not e4?

    Because the question is about a4 and h4!

  • #15

    both moves are horrible compared to the option with e4!

  • #16

    h4 is better than a4 because it is the height of arrogance! hahaha Laughing

  • #17

    a4 is for pussies. h4! and attack the kingside!

  • #18

    Both moves are horrible, but check the ranking of openings I listed in one of my blogs.

    1. a4 is much better: CASTLE KINGSIDE! h4 weakens the kingside

    h4 is MUCH better. It attacks the king. Some white moves could be h4,h5,h6,d4,nc3, bf4,qd2,o-o-o,g4,g5...
