    I play the english (1.c4) as my primary white opening. It is solid and has served me well...

    and the English does have a tendency to catch people unawares, it's not just a "reverse Sicilian".

    True. In general the lines that scare me the most are the ones where black does not play e5 early on.

    Recently started playing f4.

    I love it. And If you are prepared to do a little memorising From's Gambit holds no surprises and is good for white.

    Sure I'll play, I've updated my challenge settings to allow you to challenge me. Just sent me a game when you get an opening.

    Anybody else (that I haven't played before) that sends me a random challenge due to me opening up my settings will find the game promptly deleted.

    Note:though Nf3 is considered a flank opening, i like c4 and f4 better,so if you want to discuss Nf3 here, feel free to, i probably won't add input,though
