    Hi there, I am doing a term project on chess openings, and wanted to have your opinion about it. What is the most exiting opening for you? Why?

    In this way, I may put in a sentence like "In RHP.com, a CC site, most users prefer the x opening, for it suits their .... playing style." I also want to put some example games of such openings, if I can.

    For me, the most exciting opening is the King's Gambit. Never played it though...

    In my opinion in chess are not boring openings or opening lines. there are only boring players

    lemme tell ya, all the openings are boring, they follow chess principles and almost never violates them. gambit...pffft so what, sacrificing one pawn isn't exciting.

    I was about to dismiss that comment as hyperbole, and then I looked at this:

    LOL If you thinking that following the chess principles are always boring, then I can tell that your knowledges of chess are rather poor.

    After 1.e4 f6 2.d4 Kf7 instead of harmless 3.Bc4 white can play for example 3.Nc3, 3.Bd3 or 3.f4 with large advantage.
