How have the opening repertoires of the folks on RHP changed over the last year?
King's Gambit (always) vs e5,
2. Nf3 and play into open sicilian variations vs c5,
King's Indian Attack vs e6, and c6,
cry vs Pirc/Modern
nothing concrete vs. d4 (mostly playing into an orthodox QGD),
Sicilian Dragon vs ...[text shortened]... fell in love with the KIA)
Sicilian Accelerated Dragon vs e4
King's Indian setup vs c4
Sort of, except for that KIA stuff.
English - Botvinnik Formation against almost anything
Sicilian - Najdorf, often into a Hedgehog Formation
vs. 1.c4 1...e5 with a reversed closed sicilian style position.
King's Gambit against e5, with the occasional Ruy Lopez (8.a4 anti-Marshall, 9.d4 main)
1...c5 Open Sicilian, Yugoslav, Freak, Keres, Sozin, Bxf6.
1...e6 I've never made a concrete choice, for a while I generally played the Reti Gambit, but I'm really enjoying 2.Qe2 as per Northern Lad.
1...c6 Advanced Caro-Kann (3...Bf5 4.Nc3 e6 5.g4)
1...d6 150 Attack
1....Nf6 2.e5 Nd5 3.d4 e6 4.Nf3
That's pretty complete
vs. 1.e4 Sicilian, Dragon, 10...Rc8 if it gets that far. Against very low rated players or players who avoid Open Sicilians I sometimes use the Alekhine.
vs. 1.d4 My thread makes it pretty clear how confused I've been against this, right now it's the KID.
vs. 1.c4 KID setup.
vs. 1.Nf3 1...Nf6 KID setup usually.
