    Hey Nowakowski - you were right!

    The thread that this was linked to one that has been removed.

    The Greatest opening of all time is still a secret.

    That's a good thing. The thought of combining the Hippo, Claw, TV, and Frankenstein-Dracula into one opening was too horrible to comtemplate. With the opening move 1)Qxa8, this new discovery would have ended chess as we know it. This thread will self-destruct in 5 seconds......cue MI theme music.....

    1 Qxa8 is certainly a devastating opening move. I can't believe I didn't see it before.

    So whom should we ignore this time?

    The Greatest Opening must surely be the one with the highest winning percentage for White, in which case one contender is 1.Na3:

    and its all about #1, other 2 could be fools mate and the "im good at chess i only need 4 moves if im white" attack for all i care

    GP has quite a lecture on his chandler cornered site against using the nadjorf against "strong players" unless you are GM type caliber. Look out for a lecture!
