Which do you prefer, being white or black.
Do you like open or closed games?
Which are better bishops or knights?
I enjoy bishops in open games while I'm white. What do you like?
1. I like playing as Black.
2. I like a combination of the two.
3. I like Knights better.
1. I like playing as white as then no-one can differentiate from 1. e4
2. Closed games are horrible, I can never find any moves!
3. Bishops are better overall, and especially so nearer the end and in open positions.
i like playing as white
i like open games like 1.d4
overall i like both
I prefer white atm. I don't have a preference for open or closed games. Knights in closed/semi closed position, or in an endgame with pawns on the same side of the board, or when defense or attack of a single square is needed, however I like a bishop more in all of the other situations.
I like closed games, cramped.
I like too play as white.
And I prefer Bishops to Knights.
Pawns should not be allowed to promote to queens
