Who is to decide which move is the first interesting? Without even knowing the game? I think that every move is interesting, at least before we get it, perhaps not after. But giving away the information whic ...[text shortened]... lease, don't reveal the moves more than one a day. (But of course, I don't own this thread.)
I didn't say they wern't interesting. if white would start with 1.b3 or 1.f4 they would be interesting, but trying to guess the first move is just so meaningless
in every point of view. it just doesn't mean anything, it's actually not even thinking, it's almost silly. the same applies for the next several moves too, I think.
I really can't believe people are standing behind this. this one day of thinking time is (or should be, since I cannot see any other reason behind it) for letting people have time for actual thinking and analysing, for evaluating the positions. in this position, what are people analysing or evaluating? nothing. simply, plain, ordinary nothing. it will be the same until we reach a position where it's now beyond only a matter of opening taste.
can you guess or find out by analysis and evaluation, Fischer's favorite opening from the beginning position? no, right? then imagine you're trying to do the same thing for a chess player you don't even know
