    Anyone else have one of these? I find I love to play a sicillian against those rated 150+ points below me. I also play a kings gambit and rarely 1.d4 against them (all openings I don't hazard against those rated equal/higher than me).

    How many of you play differnt openings for as many games as possible? or do you stick to one system untill you know it?

    I have two systems against higher and lower rated players:

    carokann - against higher vs french defence against lower

    also - now I bought two books:
    1) opening repertoire for attacking chesplayer
    2) opening repertoire for positional chessplayer

    I am going to try first system against lower and second against higher rated players

    Can you give some examples of what is found in the second book?

    The only repertoire you need for my level is just wait and see. The blunder is prone to pop up within thirty moves.
