    If you were the world champion, what openings would you try to make fashionable? As an aside, what openings are you fed up of seeing?

    I would like to see more of the slav defense at the top level

    You are kidding right, more slav defense

    Reti...difficult complicated middle game positions that explode into aggressive exchanges and Kings Gambit although I never play the latter corr or otb.
    Fed up with Queens Gambits.....borrrrrring.

    It's already the most popular response to 1. e4 by far.

    Edit: as for Queen's Gambits, the more popular options seem to be KID or Nimzo-Indian.

    I'd probably push the Sveshnikov and the KID back into action. If only Radjabov would become World Champ.....

    I'd like to see more of the Kings Indian Attack for white and Caro Kann defence for black. I'd like to see less of the Sicilian. The chess world had been overloaded with Sicilian games for too long.
