    Well, I walk up to them and say something cheesy like 'Are you tired?'.

    Then they say 'Why?'.

    And I say ' Cos you have been running through my mind all night'.

    An opening move that unfortunately is strategically good, but tactically unsound!!!

    h400 I think is the best opinning move! And if you order now, you'll get a free collection of Pro 4.673 sharp knives, and tacticall forks

    Now, seriously, I think for begginer e4 works just fine. Maybe you should first learn some opening principles before memorizing opening lines, at your level this is not the most important chess theme I think.

    Yep, this one is particulary fantastic. But only for top player-levels...

    1. e4 is best, unless black plays 1...c5; then 1.d4 is best.

    According to New in Chess. See http://www.newinchess.com/Yearbook/Default.aspx?PageID=226

    Of course, they are wrong. 1...e6 is superior to 1...c5. See Clan 24492

    Amazing luck. In the few moves before move 27 I had built up to 27. Nd6 which I felt was a great outpost for the knight. When he played 26. ... Qg6 I suddenly realised I was exposed and he had the most horrible Knight forks. For about a dozen moves thereafter it was his game to win. The defense wasn't too difficult to find as there were no/ few options and I think he may have missed the win and just beaten himself.

    I actually enjoy my e6 games more than I enjoy my c5 games. Plus I often get to play c5 as move 3 anyway!

    Apart from those damn exd5 players!

    I especially like laughing at the fools who play 3. Nc3, then play 4. e5 after 3...Nf6.

    Just because I don't accept challenges, doesn't mean I'm scared of people taking me on with these openings and kicking my ass. Honest.

    bull***t. do not listen these sub 2000 players. what do they know about life, chess and drugs??...nothing!!

    1.e4! (or 1.g3!)
    1...c5?! 2.g3!! +-
    1...e5? 2. g3! +-
    1...e6?? (lol) 2.g3! +-
    1...d6!! 2.g3!! Bg7!? =

    1.d4? Rf6! 2.c4?? (2.Nf3 =+) g6! -+

    those are best lines. and remember, in the end it all comes down to fianchettoing your bishop.
