    To tell which Chess opening is the best is like trying to say which is the best color of something. Every person might have a very different opinion of the best way of starting a game.

    Grandmaster Robert Fischer once wrote in his Bestseller book "My Sixty Memorable Games" that the first move 1.e2-e4 was "Best by test". Once this move is made, the reply from your opponent may dictate the opening to follow such the Ruy Lopez, French Defense, Sicilian Defense, etc.

    I suggest you to try an opening you like the most and thoroughly study it with all its variations.

    If you look beyond the main lines, it is definitely going somewhere, but if you follow it through all the way you'd most likely get thrown off the premises.

    There is no best possible opening. Just do a little research, find the ones that you prefer and try them out.

    It depends on what kind of game you like to play. If you prefer an open game, 1.e4 may be best. Its main drawback is that some lines are very sharp and one opening slip can cost the entire game. the other main moves such as 1.d4, 1.c4, and 1.Nf3 generally lead to more "positional" and maneuvering games, where if an inaccurate move is made in the opening it is not generally cause for alarm.

    The best opening is the one which eventually leads to a win. '-)
    Bobby Fischer liked e4.
