    Never! and if so why in the 6 games you are playing (5 as white) have you only played d4 once, e4 once and some other move the remaining times.

    If d4 was so great you should have played it every time.

    thank god you are here to let the GMs know

    Because:

    d4 makes it harder to defend for black because
    after 1......d5 you have moves like
    2.c4 cool queens gambit
    2. e3 good as well
    and after 1...Nf6(which sucks)
    its proved that whites position is a bit better

    p.s to DRAGON FIRE (Never??) PROVE IT!!!! BITE ME! uhhhhh

    It depends in which position. Both seem pretty OK in the first move, though.

    Finally some sense.

    1.e4 is slightly overrated by a few players, such as Bobby Fischer, but similar claims for 1.d4 are simply loony.

    Ironically, the opening move that assures maximum mobility for white no matter how black responds is 1.e3. Anyone want to claim that is best?

    I can't play with you because you are not a subscriber and you are playing all your games.

    1.d4 in the hands of someone who knows how to play it is a lethal weapon, as is 1.e4 in the hands of a talented or experienced player. Neither of these moves are crap, it depends on who is playing them as to how they turn out.

    Agreed.

    They are both good openings. You would be outright lying if you said d4 is better than e4 or e4 is better than d4. They both have their plusses and minusses, and it's really based on the player's style to find out which one is better. If you like tactical, e4 is probably the best bet. If you like more closed games, d4 is the way to go.
